Across Tuscany and anywhere wine is made, nature gives us its bounty. At Castello Banfi and throughout the varied terroirs and soils that make up our constellation of vineyards, we harvest the goodness of the earth, caressing and nurturing it as we craft our wine to express all its character in every bottle. Castello Banfi is a family-owned vineyard estate and winery in the Brunello region of Tuscany. Together with its sister estates in Piedmont, Vigne Regali and Principessa Gavia, it has become recognized the world over for its dedication to excellence and sparking a renaissance in the art of Italian winemaking. The Mariani family proprietors credit education, dedication and discipline for the success that has accorded honors. Perhaps most gratifying of all is the praise of neighboring vintners who acknowledge Banfi’s role in pioneering a new era in Brunello and bringing the wine world’s attention to Montalcino. Banfi has pioneered clonal research on the Sangiovese vine to produce a more consistently excellent Brunello di Montalcino, and reduced sulfites and histamines through more organic winemaking. Technological advances, including customized cooperage for more balanced wines, nitrogen bottling to eliminate the addition of sulfites, electro-dialysis to allow flavors to emerge, and development of fermenters that combine both stainless steel and wood, are balanced with a profound respect for tradition and deep expression of the local terroir and microclimate. In the end, at Castello Banfi, winemaker and nature partner to allow the wine’s natural pedigree to emerge in artful expression. On the gentle western slopes facing the Mediterranean of our 2900 hectare estate (7100 acres), one-third is cultivated in noble vines, and the balance in olive groves, wheat, truffles and plums, and forests filled with deer, wild boar and pheasants. Forty million years ago, our terra lay beneath the sea. Fossilized shells nourish our vines. The soil is poor; vines grow deep. Grapes grown in our maritime soils produce wines of elegant and subtle character, unique to southern Tuscany. Our terra, rich in clay and calcium, regulates growth and adds complexity. Stones, rounded by the Orcia and Ombrone Rivers impart distinctive minerals to our white wines. Our decades of clonal and enological research, especially focused on our red grape varieties, have been registered with the European Community and shared with all. These endeavors gave rise to the renaissance of Brunello and the creation of “Super Tuscan” wines. The wines of Castello Banfi represent the fruit of our continual pursuit of excellence in the art of winemaking. These noble wines, distinct in their undeniable expression of this unique terrain, marry tradition with innovation, from the vineyard to the cellar. Critically acclaimed by the top guides in Italy and internationally, Castello Banfi has sparked a worldwide renaissance for the grand wines of Tuscany. Castello Banfi exalts the historic wines of Montalcino - Brunello, Rosso and Moscadello di Montalcino – along with the prestigious denominations of southern Tuscany. At our sister winery and vineyards in southern Piedmont, Vigne Regali, the winemaking gems of the Alessandria province are brought to new light.
