Home of the world-famous Brunello wine, Montalcino is an intriguing medieval hilltop town. Brunello wine is said to be "the king of reds and the red of kings". Brunello was developed by Ferruccio Biondi Santi a little more than a century ago, and almost immediately drew the attention of connoisseurs for its excellence. Brunello is produced exclusively within the Montalcino territory, and only from Sangiovese Grosso grapes, a Sangiovese clone perfectly suited to local conditions. Before release, Brunello must be aged for four years, at least two of which must be in wooden casks.At the end of the tour, sit back, relax and enjoy your 2 hour drive back to your accommodation in Florence. The duration of your tour is about 10 hours and you can expect to be back at your hotel around 6pm, depending on local traffic.
