About this title


The Pursuit of Excellence is a case study in the enological and viticultural experience of the Castello Banfi vineyard estate in Montalcino, Tuscany over the past 30 years. It details groundbreaking research into the clones of the Sangiovese vine; Zonation to match international grape varietals to their ideal mircoclimate in the 29 different subsoils of the 7,100 acre estate; development of hybrid oak and steel fermentation tanks; customization of aging barriques to optimize the relation between wood and wine; and in-depth review of the soils, weeds, crops, cultivation techniques, pruning and other agricultural details. The Pursuit of Excellence represents an opportunity to understand the dynamic universe made up of women, men, dedication, professionalism, and much, much passion.
