Castello Banfi still grows in Montalcino: 173.2 hectares of Brunello vines

Comparing the great territories of Italian wine to cycling, we might say that, for charm and prestige, Montalcino and Brunello are the slopes of Mortirolo and Zoncolan. Considering cycling as metaphor, Castello Banfi, already at the top, “extends” its detachment in the ranking of hectares of vineyards: the leader of the territory, from rumors WineNews, has just acquired 14 hectares, of which 2 registered with Brunello di Montalcino, and a half in IGT Tuscany, in addition to a villa that overlooks towards the Maremma, Monte Amiata and the fourteenth-century Castle of Poggio Alle Mura, already owned by Castello Banfi. 173.2 the hectares owned by Brunello di Montalcino (out of more than 900 vineyards in the area), “pressing the pedal”, it detaches Castelgiocondo, the estate of the Marchesi Frescobaldi, which has 166 hectares of Brunello. Frescobaldi, however, in the “team ranking”, would be first, for hectares of Brunello (179, in total), thanks to the 13 of the Tenuta Luce, from which the wines of Luce Della Vite are produced. A deal, signed by Castello Banfi, which once again confirms the vivacity of Montalcino from the point of view of investment, and where, according to the latest estimates, one hectare of Brunello di Montalcino is planted on prices that are close to 900,000 euros.
