Brunello di Montalcino is arguably one of the most esteemed wines in all of Italy. Aged for at least five years and made entirely of the Sangiovese grape. This elegant red wine will be enjoyed most by those who appreciate wines that are bold in flavor and rich in aroma.
Your tour begins by weaving through the picturesque hills of Tuscany to the small region of Montalcino just south of Siena where you will visit two of our favorite wineries. You will have the opportunity to meet the proprietor and explore the cellars while he/she explains everything you want to know about the wines and the winemaking process. In addition, our knowledgeable guides will give you a history of the region and pointers on how to get the most from the wines during the tasting. Throughout this trip you will have ample opportunity to enjoy the Brunello di Montalcino DOCG and Rosso di Montalcino DOC wines while also being treated to a memorable Tuscan lunch.
