Brunello tour review As lovers of Brunello, my girlfriend and I knew we had to go to Montalcino for a day during our trip to Florence. We ended up choosing this experience so that we did not have to worry about getting to Montalcino from Florence and back. We were not disappointed and I cannot speak highly enough of our guide, Angel. He is extremely knowledgeable about the wines of Montalcino, as well various other regions around the globe. He brought us to three different wineries (small, large, and massive) that all had different microclimates and soil variations to show us how it all impacts the wine. We toured the vineyard, fermentation rooms, and cellars at all three wineries. We tried 20 wines in total during the day! At the second winery (the largest in Montalcino) we had an excellent lunch pairing as well. If you are in Florence and a lover of Montalcino wines, this experience is a must! Angel was an exceptional guide; thank you for a great day!
