Castello Banfi Col di Sasso Toscana IGT 2018
👃🏼 Slightly shy nose herbs, leather, boiled candy.
👄 Pleasant-but-insufficient cherry elements on the vanguard segues quite nicely into more gentle red berries, and sweet plum tomato. Mouthfeel is medium-light, and there are some fine tannins and sort-of unripe-strawberry elements on tail, but generally very little to intrigue. One would hope for some laser-like acidity, or an aromatic explosion…or at least a tail end that lingers longer than morning breath after boozy tripe dinner…but none of those elements pitched up to save the day. It’s a quaffer. If quaffing is your thing, this is for you.🔬 13% alc. An unspecified blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. Fermented in stainless steel tanks.

I actually quite enjoyed it. And i didn't feel like Han was dissing it at all. 19/25 is decent score for a wine in that price bracket.
Yeah, completely WB. I'm a big fan!
100% agree. Just because it's foreign, doesn't mean that it's good.
