Welcome to Montalcino
Montalcino in Tuscany, Italy, is famous for its prestigious wine Brunello. It is one of the highlights of the Val d’Orcia, a scenic area south of Siena. Montalcino is dominated by an imposing fortress and blessed with a impressive history. But this Medieval hill-top town is arguably these days best known for its wines, being home to Brunello di Montalcino, one of the world’s most famous reds. It is located 50 km. south of Siena in Tuscany. The approach to Montalcino is breathtaking, with Medieval spires and its huge fortress towering over the green valley below. Once you’re up there its narrow and steep Medieval streets and stone buildings are the perfect setting for a little food shopping and wine tasting.
