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.
My wife and I did the Brunello Montalcino wine tour leaving from Florence and had an amazing time! It was interesting getting to stop at a family-owned winery and also see a bigger more commercialized one and how they differ in production and size. The food on the tour was some of the best we’ve had in Italy and all the wines were top tier as well. Over guide, Pierpaolo was great and gave us some restaurant recommendations for after the tour which turned out to also be some of the best food we had in Florence! Would definitely book again!
