Brunello’s leading wine company has decided to increase its commitment against climate change, re-launching its experimenting with 25 new varieties of vines. Castello Banfi’s goal is to offset ‘tropicalisation’ process, which in Tuscany has brought more abundant rains as well as intense heat in the past few years.
“We are looking for vines capable of adapting to climate change, which require fewer chemical treatments, for the benefit of the environment and human health. In the next three years we’ll study the results achieved by ten different vines. At the end of this period we will decide whether to request its registration in the national or rather regional vine register” said Castello Banfi’s agronomists.
