Banfi is a winery that was born in 1978 thanks to the will of the Italian-American brothers John and Harry Mariani. Right from the start, the two brothers envisaged a large-scale project, integrating quality wine production with a modern cellar with the aim of always maintaining the qualitative level of Brunello and the other wines produced at a high level. Alongside the Mariani family, Ezio Rivella, one of the greatest Italian winemakers, who immediately believed that due to the rich nature of the soil and the privileged microclimatic position, the territories acquired in Montalcino would have had great development potential. The Banfi estate extends south of Montalcino, on the border with the Val d'Orcia for 2830 hectares of property, about a third of which are cultivated with vineyards. The love for Tuscany has recently brought Banfi closer to new territories, among the most suitable in the region: Bolgheri, where the small estate combines the legendary history of the Etruscans with the production of Bolgheri DOC, Maremma, an area dedicated to the production of Vermentino, and Chianti, in one of the privileged territories for the birth of Chianti Classico.
