BRUNELLO BOUTIQUE WINERIES
Brunello wine: Too small to be renowned, much too good to miss
At a scenic 50 minute drive from Siena, close to the enchanted hills of Val d’Orcia rises Montalcino, a walled hilltop town in an outstanding position. The landscapes all around are spellbinding: stark rolling hills, marked by winding roads lined with dark cypresses and fortified towns, and extensive, resplendent vineyards. The area around Montalcino is world-renowned for its production of some of Tuscany’s most esteemed red wines: the celebrated Brunello di Montalcino and the Rosso di Montalcino. The Brunello hills host a great number of wine producing estates, among these are smaller, privately owned and not commercial boutique wineries. These boutique wineries produce small quantities of superb wines that the general public, and most connoisseurs, have never heard about.
