Banfi, the famous winery located in the Montalcino area, starting from next April to its large portfolio will add one of the most tremendous, extraordinary and incredible wines, the ice wine. Continuing with its philosophy for high quality wines, Banfi has chosen to distribute in Italy a leader brand such as Inniskillin, prestigious producer of this valuable and astonishing wine. The many times awarded winery was found in 1975 by Donald Ziraldo, with Italian origins and the Austrian Karl J. Kaiser.
The ice wine is a sweet wine, not simply a dessert wine, that to achieve the high sugar concentration and sweetness, that is well balanced by a good acidity, it needs a specific climate condition, such as temperatures remaining for a long period at minus 8/10 degrees. The iced grapes permit to get a special concentration where the pureness, the freshness of the aromas, the variety characteristics of the grapes and the perfumes, are amplified thanks to the vinification and fining in stainless-still tanks.
Banfi will start with the distribution o three of the numerous wines produced by Inniskillin; the Cabernet Franc, Vidal and the Riesling.
