Aged 10 months in oak barrels
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.
