Makeover for Supertuscan Summus

Banfi was founded in 1978 by two Italian-American brothers, John and Harry Mariani. From the start, they had one big goal in mind: to create a state-of-the-art winery combined with the most advanced science in the vineyards for the production of top wines. And here we are.

Banfi’s wines are born from a passion and love for unique terroirs, from constant research, from the intimate knowledge of different areas, and the ability to combine tried and respected techniques with innovative solutions in both the vineyard and the winery. The beautiful vineyards of Montalcino and Chianti, of Piedmont and the Tuscan coast, are the ideal cradle for wines of great character and outstanding quality.

Makeover done right

With the 2017 harvest, Summus, Montalcino’s first Super Tuscan, received a makeover.

The collaboration between Azienda Vitivinicola Banfi and studio Spazio Di Paolo gave birth to this ambitious project that the customer wanted to entrust to MCC’s experience. The result is a bold, sumptuous, and sophisticated label, worthy of the exceptional positioning of this wine.

The label consists of three overlapping layers: a natural paper base marked with gold foil; a second even more noble paper, of a “black” nature, also embellished with gold foil, and finally, a medal forged in metal alloy that significantly enriches the entire package.

The final result achieved by MCC, the result of an intense collaboration between all parties involved, is amazing! It fully met our expectations. We consider the bottle, as a whole, a masterpiece!” – Marketing Team, Banfi Wines, Montalcino
