    Winemaker Notes

    Syrah, one of the great red varietals of the world, produces deep-colored and distinctly elegant wines. Although very little Syrah is produced in Italy, the vines grow to perfection within a single vineyard high on the hillsides of Castello Banfis Montalcino estate. Here, the temperate climate, marked by warm days and cool nights, and nutrient-enriched soil provide optimal growing conditions for this delightful Syrah. Colvecchio Syrah is an intensely violet-colored red wine with a bouquet and taste that hint of pepper and chocolate. This 100% Syrah is well-rounded, harmonious and offers great richness and depth. Colvecchio Syrah is perfect with veal, pork, red meats and cheeses.

    Castello Banfi, Italy
    Castello Banfi Winery Video

    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.

    While picturesque hillsides, endless coastlines and a favorable climate serve to unify the grape-growing culture of this country. The apparent never-ending world of indigenous grape varieties gives Italy an unexampled charm and allure. From the steep inclines of the Alps to the sprawling, warm, coastal plains of the south, red grape varieties thrive throughout.

    The kings of Italy, wines like Barolo and Barbaresco (made of Nebbiolo), and Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino (made of Sangiovese), as well as Amarone (mostly Corvina), play center stage for the most lauded, collected and cellar-worthy reds. Less popular but entirely deserving of as much praise are the wines made from Aglianico, Sagrantino and Nerello Mascalese.

    For those accustomed to drinking New World reds, the south is the place to start. Grapes like Negroamaro or Primitvo from Puglia and Nero d’Avola from Sicily make soft, ammicable, full-bodied, fruit-dominant wines. Curious palates should be on the lookout for Cannonau, Lagrein, Teroldego, Ruché, Freisa, Cesanese, Schiopettino, Rossese and Gaglioppo to name a few.
