The formula for this wine tasting tour south of siena.
A “cluster” of Brunello wine estimators eager to find out where the Brunello wine was born and eager to discover all its secrets, from the vines to the casks, to the rules to produce it and much more.
Brunello is a red wine, full-bodied, aged, structured and complex, can be elegant or wild, it depends on the philosophy of the wineries and their location.
The scenary is quite different from Chianti region, from where the Chianti is hilly and green, here is mainly brown with cypress trees that appear from time to time.
The only selected area where is possible to make the Brunello wine is set around the pretty town of Montalcino and only 250 wine producers are allowed to make the Brunello and the Rosso di Montalcino wine.
All that makes the Brunello even more special.
