We are happy to announce that we have added a number of excellent Tuscan wines to our range from the renowned family-owned wine producer Castello Banfi. Founded in 1978 by the Mariani family in Montalcino, Castello Banfi share a similar philosophy to many of the producers in our portfolio; combining modern innovation with time-honoured traditional practices whilst working with concern for the environment.Read More
The Castello Banfi estate is the largest contiguous vineyard in Europe and includes land in Tuscany and Piedmont. Despite its size the estate is not a mono-culture with one third planted to vines, one third to olive groves, fruit trees and other crops and the remaining third woodland. At the centre of the estate, at 280 metres above sea-level, is the Castello, historically known as Poggio alle Mura, meaning walled hill top, which is now a centre for Banfi wines following extensive restoration by the Mariani family to repair damage sustained during World War Two.
Exclusively made from free-run juice, the Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio grapes are kept under a strict temperature control at all times. The Chardonnay brings roundness to the crisp Pinot Grigio.
Intense and fresh, with raspberry and plum aromas dominating but with spicy undertones. Full and soft, this is a concentrated and fruity wine.
