MONTALCINO

Montalcino is a lovely little town where its medieval heritage is visible throughout the place. Besides several churches of great interest , among which The Cathedral (built in Neoclassical style), St. Egidio’s church, St. Agostino’s church and St. Francis’ church(with its beautiful cloisters),  and The Priori’s Palace (with its beautiful façade covered with coat of arms), it’s definitely the Fortress that catches immediately the attention of the tourist arriving in Montalcino. This beautiful and imposing building, constructed in 1361 using part of the existing walls, has been wonderfully preserved and its interior can be visited today.
But of course when we talk about Montalcino the first word that spring up to the mind it’s wine! The clones of Sangiovese Grosso, combined with the natural composition of the soil of this wonderful territory and a technique of wine-making developed to the state of the art, have given birth to one of the most prestigious and
best wines ever, the BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO.  This wine with its intense color and taste it’s the perfect match with the traditional and delicious cuisine of this area, mainly based on natural and tasty ingredients such as the olive oil, the best quality of the meat ( beef, game and venison), the pecorino cheese, the salami, the hams etc.
