Sadly, 2014 is going to be recalled as one of the most raining and cool summer since Banfi started its adventure in Montalcino.
Despite the continuous rains, which made truly difficult to plan the harvest operations, we completed the picking of the whites in the right time, and we managed to have good results for all the varieties.
The complete maturation and the harvesting of the latter varieties, such as Sangiovese, were made difficult by the rain. However, thanks to the good organization of the technical team, we achieved to have their picking concluded in perfect time.
Beyond any doubt, the accurate handling of the selection of the best quality grapes, which we carried out especially with the red varieties, marked the true turning point of 2014 vintage.
