Full description
Meet with your private driver and depart towards the Southern part of Tuscany.  Here you will meet your expert local guide, touring a magic small jewel of Val D'Orcia, Castelmuzio. In ten minutes you will reach Montisi, where a professional sommelier will introduce you the secrets of truffle and all the properties of this wonderful gem. Enjoy a light lunch based on truffle and bubbles. After that, crossing the most beautiful views of Val D'Orcia, you will reach Montalcino. Home of the world-famous Brunello wine, Montalcino is an intriguing medieval hilltop town. Brunello wine is said to be "the king of reds and the red of kings". Brunello will now be our host and you its welcomed host. Brunello was developed by a Noble Tuscany Family a little more than a century ago, and almost immediately drew the attention of connoisseurs for its excellence. Brunello is produced exclusively within the Montalcino territory, and only from Sangiovese Grosso grapes, a Sangiovese clone perfectly suited to local conditions. Before release, Brunello must be aged for four years, at least two of which must be in wooden casks. At the end of the tour, sit back, relax, and enjoy your 2-1/2 hour drive back to your hotel in Rome. The duration of your tour is about 10 hours and you can expect to be back at your hotel around 6:00pm, depending on local traffic.
