"Prime" is a long cherished dream; the transfer of the same emotions and flavours to a distillate that only the most famous Italian wines can offer. In order to realise this dream, collaboration was undertaken with producer friends. Step by step, the maturation of the distillates in their barrels was closely monitored and the exact same barrels that once contained the respective wines are used to preserve the original soul of each grape. Typical Venetian packaging was chosen for the Prime to celebrate the territory as the centre of a small world of commitment, research and development. This precious spirit comes from the distillation of grapes used to produce Brunello di Montalcino, grown on the Castello Banfi estate. The entire grape is fermented in an exclusive process that guarantees the preservation of the noblest aromatic components. The next step is distillation at low temperature in copper stills that are vacuum sealed. The resulting brandy is then matured in small barrels that were previously used for Brunello di Montalcino, giving it its full-bodied flavour but without compromising the typical freshness of the original fruit.Tasting notes:Colour: Amber.
