Your personal tour will involve leisurely winding your way through the hills of Tuscany to a one on one meeting with the proprietors of the wineries. You will discover the intricacies of crafting the Brunello di Montalcino wines and have the opportunity to explore the extensive cellars. During the tasting, your experienced guide will teach you the proper techniques to taste vine in order to fully appreciate the wines taste and feel.
In addition to the Brunello di Montalcino, you will have ample opportunity to experience the lighter-styled Rosso di Montalcino: the younger, “declassified” Brunello, which was created to be much more accessible than its brother.
