Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, May 2003
Loads of mineral and dried flowers behind the ripe fruit and almost raisiny character. Full-bodied with smooth silky tannins and a long fruity berry almost fresh herb aftertaste. An exceptional wine. Best after 2004... Loads of mineral and dried flowers behind the ripe fruit and almost raisiny character. Full-bodied with smooth silky tannins and a long fruity berry almost fresh herb aftertaste.

Castello Banfi

Castello Banfi, a family-owned wine estate in the Tuscany region, was founded in 1978 by Italian-American brothers, John and Harry Mariani.

The Banfi territory encompasses 7,100 acres of land in Montalcino, of which about one third is planted with Sangiovese, Moscadello and other notable varieties on extremely rich and uniform soils of clay and calcium.

Banfi Piedmont was founded with the acquisition of the historic Bruzzone winery. The holdings there extend between the towns of Novi Ligure and Acqui over an area of 124 acres of which 114 are under vine.

The Banfi vineyards in Bolgheri, located south of Castagneto Carducci, give life to the prized Aska, bringing together intensity, roundness and structure.

Banfi also manages 100 acres of specialized vineyard in Chianti which bequeaths wines that bring together structure, elegance, and typical Tuscan personality.
