For the Chardonnay it makes little difference where it is planted. With careful care, this grape can always produce special wines. In the warm climate of Tuscany, this is always a wine with a special strength and depth, a mighty glass of white. In recent years there has been a trend towards lighter chardonnay wines in an uncomplicated style, but that is not the type of Chardonnay that people like to see at Castello Banfi. It is believed here that a Tuscan Chardonnay should be powerful and deep. The grapes are harvested ripe and the wine ferments and matures in French oak barrels, giving it a special complexity and breadth.

Colour: Pale yellow.
Smell: Powerful scent, nice wood, toasted and roasted, but the fruit is not forgotten, citrus, floral, open, nice complex.
Taste: Open taste, a good glass of wine, very typical, nice modern style chardonnay, juicy, freshness, peach, not too strict with a touch of sweetness and a bit of sourness.
