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 oenologists, who understood that due to the richness of the soils and the privileged microclimatic position, the property would have great capacity of development. In those years, the brothers, John and Harry, also purchased Bruzzone, a historic winery in Piedmont. Founded in 1860 and specialized in the production of sparkling wines, today is known as Banfi Piemonte.

Wine pairing notes

An earthy and robust dish dominated indeed by the flavour of the black truffles, the pungency of the fried onions, by the texture of the noodle, enriched by the roundness of the fats (pork and chicken). The full body of this Rosso di Montalcino is a very practicable and pleasant match that also softens the saltiness of the Asian condiments. The good and long final of the wine combines well with the aftertaste of the noodles and contributes to the satisfying sensation in the mouth left by each bite.
