ASKA, in Etruscan means container. The Etruscans used it
as a vessel to store wine and olive oil and to collect perfumes
and nectars. However, not only: as the legend goes, this
was a treasure chest to protect hopes, dreams, happiness
and joy, entrusted to Estruscan gods Cuatha and Sernia (Sun
and Moon), represented by the two bright spheres which
mark day and night on the label. Produced with a selection
of Cabernet Sauvignon with a small percentage of Cabernet
Franc from highly specialized vineyards, Aska is the Bolgheri
Rosso DOC that expresses the winning alliance between
tradition and innovation which is, and always has been, a
core Banfi philosophy.
Deep ruby red with violet reflections. Bouquet: Red berries, blueberries and plum jam are followed by hints of tobacco and licorice. Taste: The wine is well rounded, with velvety tannins and a persistent finish.
