Castello Banfi

(Castello) Banfi was created in 1978 by the Italian American brothers, John, and Harry Mariani, when they acquired the Castello di Poggio alle Mura and surrounding vineyards to the southwest of Montalcino near Sant’Angelo Scalo. The aim was to simply produce the best Brunello di Montalcino possible from their carefully nurtured vineyards and state-of-the-art winery. As a result, the Mariani’s hired one of the greatest Italian winemakers of the time, Ezio Rivella, to turn their dream into reality. Almost half a century later, the estate is still family owned, now in the capable hands of the third generation with Cristina Mariani-May (pictured), as well as her cousin; James Mariani. Cristina became President and CEO in 2018, yet has been involved with the winery since the early 1990s, where from the beginning her mantra has always been “in the pursuit of excellence” driving Banfi to become one of the largest, and most prolific producers in Montalcino.

Tuscany

Gone are the days when Tuscany's global wine exports were limited to wicker-bottomed bottles of cheap Chianti that graced every neighbourhood Italian restaurant from New Jersey to Manchester. Modern Tuscany is a large, diverse region and the beauty of its rolling landscapes and charming nature pulls in the tourists year after year. Red wines of every quality are its vinous calling cards but large quantities of crisp, flavoursome whites and honeyed, sweet wines are also present. The warm Mediterranean climate is a significant factor in Tuscany's consistent ability to produce excellent grapes, thanks to the warm days and cool nights that help the wines get the right balance of sweetness and acidity. Italy's most important red grape, Sangiovese, is right at home in Tuscany and is the backbone of Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino. Around Bolgheri, the famously expensive 'Super Tuscans' have their home and producers such as Antinori and Sassicaia make their famous wines from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes.

Brunello di Montalcino

Brunello di Montalcino is one of the great Italian red wines and hails from the Tuscany region. Brunello means ‘little brown one’ and refers to the skin of the grape which is a clone of Sangiovese. The Climate here is warm and dry and the grapes are grown on the steep slopes surrounding the medieval walled city of Montalcino. The wines are high in acidity and tannins and often require further aging in the bottle to soften and develop richer more complex flavours and a smoother texture. Typical Brunello has aromas of red and black cherries, plums, olive, spice which continue onto the palate with underlying earthiness, subtle balsamic notes and a long finish.

Brunello

Brunello is the local name for the Sangiovese Grosso grape, and is found exclusively on the hilltop sites around the Tuscan town of Montalcino. Brunello di Montalcino wines are some of Italy`s most sought after, and are powerful wines that have excellent ageing potential. Dark and brooding, with a brilliant garnet hue, the wines have complex flavours of cassis, smoke, leather and vanilla.
