Cristina Mariana-May tells us the history of the founding of Banfi Wines in New York, before taking us on a virtual tour of Montalcino and the Estate known as Castello Banfi. Here, the wines are only part of the story, with only a third of the property planted in vines and the single contiguous property a site of study, exploration, collaboration, as well as beauty. She then leads a tasting of two Castello Banfi wines, a 2018 Vermentino and the outstanding 2015 Brunello di Montalcino. A highly engaging way to escape to Italy at this challenging time through her wines and culture. Enjoy!
