Brunello di Montalcino winery tasting tour in a nutshell. 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".
Brunello di Montalcino has become one of the most sought-after DOCG wines by wine connoisseurs from all over the world. Its depth of flavor and full-body feel make it an instant favorite among red wine lovers. Aged for at least four years and made entirely of the Sangiovese grape, this elegant red wine offers a fantastic opportunity to break away from the traditional Chianti tour.
Your private Brunello wine tour will involve leisurely winding your way through the hills of Tuscany to a one on one meeting with the proprietors of the wineries. You will discover the intricacies of crafting the Brunello di Montalcino wines and have the opportunity to explore the extensive cellars. During the tasting, your experienced guide will teach you the proper techniques to use in order to fully appreciate the wines taste and feel.
In addition to the Brunello di Montalcino, you will have ample opportunity to experience the lighter-styled Rosso di Montalcino: the younger, “declassified” Brunello, which was created to be much more accessible than its brother. You will also be treated to a memorable Tuscan lunch that gives you a great chance to enjoy authentic Italian cuisine.

During our honeymoon, we did the Brunello di Montalcino wine tour in May and had a blast! We both agreed this was absolutely one of our favorite things we did in Italy. Mateo was an excellent guide, and we loved getting to know him. He taught us so much about wine and Tuscany and was so helpful in assisting us with choosing wines (and olive oil!) to ship home. We would recommend this tour.
