Brunello di Montalcino

The Brunello wine is one of the best and most pricey wines in Italy. It is a red wine that is produced in the region of Montalcino, around an hours drive south of Siena. The wine is produced with the same grape as the Chianti wine, namely Sangiovese, and the Brunello wine consists of 100% Sangiovese grapes.

While driving around in the Montalcino region you will come across plenty of vineyards. Just stop by and sample some of their wines. Over the summer months it is recommended to book an appointment in advance, the cost is normally between 10 – 20 Euros and includes a round tour of the vineyard, the story about the production and some samples of their wine.
