Montalcino and Brunello Wine Tour

Share

It is very difficult to explain in just a few words why you should choose a tour in Montalcino. The small village on top of a high hill dominates the Valdorcia. On the other side of the valley, Montepulciano can be seen on sunny days.

 

Montalcino was born as a military fort to protect the Via Francigena (Frank-route) that pilgrims used to go from the northern countries to Rome. The street was used by Charlemagne to go to his coronation as emperor on Christmas Eve on the year 800 AD. During the trip he had time to stop in this wild area,  immersed in the forests, and found an important monastery around which an important economy will develop during the Medieval age: the Abbey of Sant' Antimo.

Recently Brunello di Montalcino wine, invented by Ferruccio Biondi-Santi in the 19th century, has become one of the most famous red wines in the world.

The favorable position, not far from the coast, the precious soil, the expertise of the wineries that have reached in many cases an international level, the beauty of nature make this area a popular destination for all those who love Tuscany and want to discover the flavor of its wines and its unique food in an unforgettable journey.

 

This tour will start from your accommodation. During the drive, about 90 minutes through Tuscany to reach the area of Montalcino, your expert driver will present the history of the territory and of the wine designation.

The winemakers at the first small top producer will be happy to welcome you and introduce you to Brunello's territory and production methods,while going through the fields, visiting the equipment premises and discovering the aging cellars. A wine tasting will follow, which will make you more familiar with Brunello, if you do not already know it.

 

Brunello is a certified product at European level as DOCG and its production is established through very strict rules of the “Brunello Consortium”. The first rule is that Brunello is made with 100% Sangiovese Grosso. The best Sangiovese in the world, due to a particular microclimate and to minimum 5 years of aging before it is realised.

In Montalcino you can also find Supertuscan Wines, Vinsanto (sweet desert aged wine) and Tuscan white wines, such as Vermentino. International grapes, such as Merlot and Cabernet, are also cultivated.

 

You will visit the village of Montalcino, you can enter its imposing medieval fortress and have time for a stroll and shopping. Then you will enjoy a typical lunch, savoring the original food of the province of Siena paired with Brunello, one of the most appreciated reds by the world critics.

In the afternoon we will go to the southernmost part of the territory of Montalcino, to visit the Romanesque Abbey of Sant' Antimo before a second tour at a second important producer. You will have time to take pictures to the Montalcino countryside that, we are sure, you will never forget.

 

Obviously we can organize the day to include the visit of 3 wine cellars. If you already know of the producers you want to visit, we will be happy to arrange for you the visit. Otherwise, we will propose some solutions.
