Explore the steep cobbled alleys of Montalcino and indulge in the best gastronomical delights the region has to offer.
Originally from the Sienese hills, Brunello di Montalcino is undoubtedly among the best known red wines both in Italy and in the rest of the world. It is produced only in the territory of Montalcino, therefore its limited production makes this wine of exceptional quality. Moreover, the older and better it becomes: let's find out how the Brunello di Montalcino is produced and what its organoleptic characteristics are, which have made it - quite rightly - very popular both among experts and among simple wine lovers.
But there is more to Montalcino than just fine wines. This picturesque village situated in the hill-tops of one of the most scenic regions in Italy is riddled with small alley-ways built during ancient times with cobbled stones. The steep slopes of these lanes can effectively wear you out. But with some boost from the delicious vino and even more mouth-watering delicacies of this region, you will be good to go.
The cuisine of Montalcino is similar to the other regions in Tuscany. It is focused on heavy meat stews and soups, different types of beans, porcini mushrooms, fresh pasta and of course oodles of local olive oil! It is no mystery that all the delicacies of the region pair perfectly well with the local wines. The region is also famous for its local patisseries and desserts.
