Jazz & Wine in Montalcino 2022: wines from Banfi

Connoisseurs know this all too well: nothing goes so well with good wine as jazz music, where the warm, vibrant notes warm the heart in much the same way as an excellent Brunello or a Chianti can capture the palate.  The combination of jazz and wine might be considered traditional, especially in Montalcino, the land of Brunello and Moscadello, which has been hosting Jazz & Wine in Montalcino for 25 years now, a festival all about music and wine, devised by the Banfi winery, together with the Rubei family from the Alexander Platz in Rome and the Municipal Authority of Montalcino.

In the stunning setting of Fortezza di Montalcino and for the opening evening on 19 July, Castello Banfi, internationally famous jazz artists will be playing live in a packed, thrilling program of new performances, under the artistic direction of Eugenio Rubei.

Every evening, starting at 9:45 pm, jazz music will be the undisputed star of the evenings in Montalcino, only sharing the stage with some fine wine.

On the fifth day, you can immerse yourselves in the hot Brazilian summer to the rhythm of the bass played by John Patitucci, the drums of Rogerio Boccato, and Yotam Silberstein on guitar.

But Jazz & Wine in Montalcino 2022 is not just about jazz music - there’s also some great wine. The event is the result of an idea by the Banfi wine company, which, together with the Rubei family (in charge of the artistic part), dedicates care, attention, and professionalism to the organization of the whole event, offering jazz enthusiasts the opportunity to enjoy the region's very finest wines.

The proposals made by Banfi are refined, exclusive and focus on wines with close, profound links to the Montalcino area, including world-famous Tuscan excellences, such as Chianti, as well as some renowned Piedmont names, both sparkling and still.

Of all the wines that go best with Jazz & Wine in Montalcino, there is, of course, Brunello, a wine with a sweet, fruity nose, like a night spent under the stars, listening to great artists, or Moscadello, with its crisp, effervescent aroma that pairs beautifully with the lively notes of Brazilian jazz, or even Rosso di Montalcino, ideal to accompany the typical cuisine of the area, like pappardelle pasta with rabbit ragout, or truffles.
