2016 Chianti Annata, Castello Banfi, Tuscany, Italy, Chianti DOCG
Banfi was founded in 1978 thanks to the will power of the Italian-American brothers, John and Harry Mariani. From the beginning, the goal of the two brothers was to create a state-of-the-art winery combined with the most advanced science in the vineyards for the production of premium wines.
Together with the Mariani family, it was developed with Ezio Rivella, one of Italy's foremost oenologists, who understood that due to the richness of the soils and the privileged microclimatic position, the property would have great capacity of development.
The wine undergoes medium-short fermentation with traditional maceration. A 5- to 6-month storage in stainless steel follows.
Banfi Chianti perfectly interprets the unique personality of this historic appellation with its alluring bouquet, rich flavours, supple tannins and good acidity.
