Banfi Excelsus "Super Tuscan"

Wine Notes

A super Tuscan that perfectly combines the best tradition of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with the territory of Montalcino. The result is an intense wine with very fruity scents accompanied by more complex notes of jam, spices, tobacco, and coffee. In the mouth, it shows all its grandeur, with sweet tannins and very persistent hints. A very elegant long-lasting wine, perfect with red meats and aged cheeses.

Banfi was founded in 1978 thanks to the will of the Italian-American brothers, John and Harry Mariani.

From the beginning, the goal of the two brothers was to create a state-of-the-art winery combined with the most advanced science in the vineyards for the production of premium wines. Together with the Mariani family, Ezio Rivella, one of Italy's foremost enologists, who understood that due to the richness of the soils and the privileged microclimatic position, the property would have great capacity of development.

In those years, the brothers, John and Harry, also purchased Bruzzone, a historic winery in Piedmont. Founded in 1860 and specialized in the production of sparkling wines, today is known as Banfi Piemonte.
