Montalcino is a must for those who want to visit the Val d’Orcia! This is the homeland of the famous Brunello di Montalcino wine, one of the most famous and well-known wines in the world. You cannot fail to indulge in a nice tasting in one of the many wineries in the area! To the south of Monte Amiata, expanses and expanses of vineyards grow that surround the fairytale medieval village, surrounded by an ancient castle and a large and mighty wall.
A village with a great history, Montalcino derives from Mons Ilcinus, or the mount of holm oaks (in fact, the inhabitants of Montalcino are called ilcinesi). Walking through the vineyards that lead to the enchanting village, your attention will be immediately captured by the mighty fortress, a pentagonal castle site of important events such as the Jazz & Wine Festival. A festival animated by music, theater, dance and of course Brunello tastings that will take place in the Enoteca della Fortezza.
