Castello Banfi

by Cristina Mariani-May
The Castello Banfi estate is a genuine empire that extends over almost three thousand hectares in Tuscany. A true puzzle of different soils, each with its own specific conformations. It has become one of the world’s most unique research plantations, with 25 years of clonal research, soil and hydration studies, nitrogen bottle pioneering, and research into French Limousin oak. Findings from these studies have been generously shared with the wine-making community at large
