Montalcino is a medieval village surrounded by walls and is also the region of the famous Brunello wine. The city center is known for its narrow alleys, taverns, and artisan shops. Born as a defensive castle, Montalcino is located on a high hill, from where it dominates the Sienese territory and from which you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Tuscan countryside.
I recommend to all red wine lovers a stop in this enchanting corner of Tuscany to taste the famous Brunello di Montalcino, with more than 250 wineries to choose from. To sleep instead, I will give you here below a list of my favorite hotels:

If you like Tuscany and especially the Montalcino area, this place will be first on your wish list. I highly recommend it if you like a luxurious and charming location.
The beautiful spa and pools and outstanding wine. The service is phenomenal, and the entire staff from the valet up through the general manager are kind, polite, friendly, and professional.
Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco
