The American firm Banfi own (too) much of the Brunello territory. In my opinion they are not the best wine makers, but they sure know how to build a great hotel. Just like Disney knows how to make good kids movies.
Everything is excellent. The room is huge (the shower alone as big as a room in NYC), beautiful, comfortable. The service is perfect. Breakfast is great. We had a package deal with dinner included, which was great, only minor point was our smoking neighbor.
The pool is beautiful, with breathtaking view, service around the pool is truly 5 star.
In the reading room one can drink as much (Banfi) wine as one likes, while listening to (good) classical music.
To be short: fantastic experience! Very memorable indeed.
