Tour’s Location

Montalcino – An enchanting medieval walled village south of Siena, overlooking the Natural Park of the Orcia Valley. Immerse yourself in the birthplace of Brunello, where Ferruccio Biondi Santi pioneered the use of Sangiovese Grosso vines in winemaking in 1888. The wines are classified under the D.O.C.G. The Italian category reflects the essence of the region’s hills, which are rich in minerals, thanks to the influence of the Amiata Mountain, a silent ancient volcano.
