FEATURES

  • In Castellina in Chianti, one of the most important historical areas of Chianti Classico, Banfi carefully selects grapes coming exclusively from 40 hectares of the Fonte alla Selva vineyard.
  • Bolgheri, famous for its prestigious wines and its exceptional territory, has become the stage of a new, extraordinary Banfi Tuscany wine, called ASKA.
  • La Pettegola Vermentino is the newest Banfi Tuscany white coming from the Maremma zone of southern Tuscany.
  • Banfi Chianti Classico Riserva is produced from predominately Sangiovese, and other approved grapes, grown in the “Classico” region of Chianti between Siena and Firenze.

Benefits

  • Banfi’s move into Bolgheri presents new opportunities from this prestigious wine territory and is the only wine in the portfolio sourced from the Bolgheri.
  • Selected from only the best vermentino grapes from the Tuscan Maremma coast, La Pettegola is characterized by its aromatic expression, crisp backbone and balanced acidity.
  • Chianti has long been regarded by many as the “most Italian” of wines, not only because it is the most widely produced classified wine, but also because it possesses a unique personality. Fonte alla Selva Chianti Classico and Banfi Chianti Classico Riserva embody all the characteristics that has made this wine an enduring classic.
  • Fonte alla Selva is a Banfi-owned vineyard property in Castellina in Chianti.
