Cooltours® - Brunello di Montalcino Wine Region


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 Florence although a longer drive is part of the full day tour.

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.

Wineries in Montalcino are spread around the hilltop and the best wine experience will be by visiting some wineries lying in the north side of the town and wineries in the south end of the hilltop. Why? Because the soil is so different that the Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino are very different so if you want to find your favourite one consider visit at least a place in each side and get a wide view of the Brunello styles.

Award winning wineries, historical cellars and organic small vineyards are the highlight of this region.
