Brunello di Montalcino Wine Tour

Highlights

Montalcino is a tiny medieval town sat upon a hill covered by precious vineyards marked by rose plants and surrounded by rolling hills, olive grooves and vineyards. 

This renowed wine region is south of the medieval city of Siena which is generally speaking the best home base if you consider to book this wine tour anyway the tour is run also from Rome although a longer drive is part of the full day tour.

Itinerary

  • Rome or Siena
  • Montalcino
  • San Quirico d'Orcia

Details

Brunello di Montalcino started thanks to the Biondi Santi family still the leading winery in the area where today this famous wine is produced by a limited amount of vintners. 

A unique wine composed of 100% Sangiovese Grosso, a local Tuscan grape variety, which gives it an amazing structure, full body and an extraordinary elegance recognized by wine lovers and wine beginners at the same time. 

Meeting at your hotel in Rome or Siena at around 8.30/9  in the morning.
 
After the first driving part we will stop at a small off the beaten path village we chose for you and we'll talk about some historical facts of the area, some curiosities about the folk culture along with olive oil and wine making traditions typical of the tuscan farming life in the countryside.
 
You will have plenty of time to take pictures along the way and then once we will reach the selected Brunello winery, a very top-end, we will be welcomed by the owners and winemakers and we will visit together the cellars, after we will go back to the tasting room/terrace where by looking at an amazing countryside view we will start our Brunello wine tasting session paired with home-made food and our lunch will be not a snack but a full 3 courses meal.
 
After lunch it will be time to go to the hilltop town of Montalcino and we will have a walk around it.
 
At around 5 pm we will be ready to happily drive back home.
