To gladden your transfer from the hotel to Montalcino we will pass through the beautiful Crete Senesi area to discover spectacular views over the valley while the guide will inform you about the history of this ancient hilltop village. Impressive from a distance with its broken-toothed fortress on a high hill Montalcino turns out to be surprisingly tiny when you get close.
During the day we will stop in two prestigious Brunello wineries.
The guides will show you the whole wine making process and will introduce you in some of the strict Brunello productions rules.
At the end of the tasting you will know how to recognize the difference in flavor and structure between the every day Rosso di Montalcino DOC and the older Brunello di Montalcino DOCG.
According to the winery production it's also possible to taste Vinsanto, Grappa and Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
For lunch we will reach a peaceful "not touristy" restaurant.
Every day at 12.45 PM and at 02.45PM is possible to stop in the old and famous Sant’Antimo Abbey to listen to beautiful Gregorian Chants surrounded by vineyards and olive trees (free, upon request).
On the contrary we can reach Montalcino village for sightseeing and more tasting at the Enoteca.
Our full day Brunello tour lasts 8 hours.
On request is possible to be dropped off at your Hotel later.
