TOUR DESCRIPTION

 

We are glad to propose our Montalcino Wine tour that will make you experience the life and work of people producing Brunello di Montalcino wine, probably the best italian red wine, famous all over of the world. Your Brunello wine tour will start directly from your accommodation in Florence or from any Tuscany town or Tuscany country resort where we will pick you up with our luxury vehicle to drive you to your life Brunello wine tasting. During the drive, about 90 minutes through Tuscan Countryside we will have time to stop in good spot for a real italian Cappuccino and some pictures before to reach the area of Brunello di Montalcino wine. You will be spoiled by your expert driver that will present you the history of the territory and the traditions of the wine designation.

At the first Montalcino winery, a small top tuscan wine producer, the Brunello winemakers will be happy to welcome you and introduce you to Brunello's territory and production methods, while going through the fields and touching the vines, visiting the equipment premises and discovering the aging cellars. A Brunello wine tasting will follow, which will make you more familiar with Brunello red wine and some other Supertuscans and whites produced in the area.

Brunello di Montalcino is a certified product at European level as DOCG and its production is established through very strict rules of the “Brunello di Montalcino Consortium”. The first rule is that red 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 Tuscan food of the province of Siena paired with Brunello, one of the most appreciated reds by the world critics.

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

Obviously we can organize the day to include the visit of 3 wine cellars. We will be happy to arrange for you the visit to the producers that you eventually know and you want to visit, otherwise, we will propose some of our experienced solutions.

 

CULTURAL NOTES

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.
