Brunello di Montalcino was Italy’s first wine to be accorded DOCG status, a testament to its aristocracy, balance and fabulous proclivity for aging. Our Banfi Brunello di Montalcino is a culmination of over two decades of Castello Banfi’s pioneering research on the clones of Sangiovese; with the goal of producing a more outstanding quality Brunello. A meticulous grape selection is followed by vinification with skin contact for 10-12 days. Released in the 5th year after harvest, the wine is aged for a minimum of 4 years, including 2 years in oak barrels of various sizes, mainly French oak barriques, and partly in Slavonian oak casks.
