Brunello is one of the best known and most widely appreciated wines worldwide, and this tour aims to introduce you to its terroir, or "native habitat".
Sitting on a gentle hilltop, the Medieval town of Montalcino is the birthplace of the prized Brunello di Montalcino and the vineyards in the area are worth their weight in gold. Montalcino's ancient fortress is now a sanctuary of local wines.
Made exclusively from a native grape variety called Sangiovese Grosso, the long-aged Brunello di Montalcino is one of Tuscany's fullest, richest reds. The younger, lighter Rosso di Montalcino is also produced in the area.
Full-bodied wine lovers looking for a behind-the-scenes glimpse into one of Tuscany's iconic denominations. This is a private tour so plenty of customization may be arranged to meet your needs and wine knowledge.
Sample several Brunello di Montalcino DOCG and Rosso di Montalcino DOC wines. We have picked for you two different-sized top-tier wineries to provide a comprehensive experience. The winemakers will show you around the manicured vineyards and impressive cellars where the noble Brunello ages in oak barrels.
