Our Philosophy

It is our fondest desire that this project will be good for the people of Montalcino, good for Italy, good for America, good for all people who love fine wine.” With these words John F. Mariani declared the inauguration of the Castello Banfi winery on September 12, 1984. Deciding to establish a point of excellence in Montalcino, the Mariani family intrinsically tied Banfi to this territory and its own development. Castello Banfi represents a heritage and a unique experience in the world of viticulture and winemaking, in which a profound respect for the land and the intense desire to exalt its character resulted in multiple research projects. Perhaps the most important of these involved the attentive clonal selection of Sangiovese, the symbol of Montalcino, to show its inimitable expression and great versatility in the historic Brunello denomination. At the same time, we did not overlook the potential of the principal international varietals which find an ideal environment for an alternative expression of this place. Respect for the potential of this territory and the desire to exalt its character have always inspired our winemaking at Banfi, resulting in a prestigious selection that is uniquely characterized by a soul closely tied to this unique, inimitable, and extraordinary land.
