Company Profile

Banfi, based in the heart of Montalcino, are owners of vineyards in Tuscany and Piedmont. Since their foundation in 1978, they have created and cultivated Italy’s largest single estate, with research and sustainability at its heart, and managed as a constellation of single vineyards.

Winemaking at Banfi aims to bring out the very best of each fruit and retain the character of the land. Traditional methods are combined with state of the art technology and innovation. Back in 1982, in their pursuit for excellence, Banfi started clonal selection projects which resulted in the registration of 11 specific clones of Sangiovese which are able to adapt to different pedoclimatic conditions and enological requirements.

In the winery, Banfi use their unique hybrid fermenters which combine the hygienic properties of steel with the natural oxygenation and character imparted by wood. French oak barrels are their preferred choice. The staves are stacked outside for 3 years in a heptagon formations to allow even weathering before they are transformed into barrels. The toasting of the inside of each barrel is done at lower temperatures and over a longer period to avoid charring and obtain more uniform results. Bottling is made without filtration and under nitrogen to reduce the need to add sulphites and offer purer more expressive wines.

Banfi are also the founders of Fondazione Banfi, which, since 2017, has established in Montalcino the “Sanguis Jovis-Alta Scuola del Sangiovese”, the world's first permanent study centre on Sangiovese. Education, scientific research and communication are the three key points of this cultural project.
