Vines just out of Montalcino
Montalcino is known for being the place that one of Italy's finest (and most expensive) wines is produced - Brunello di Montalcino. Brunello must not be released until at least 5 years after harvest, and is aged in both barrel and bottle.
Also produced is Rosso di Montalcino, which is made from grapes that are not good enough to be used for Brunello. This wine does not have any ageing restrictions, and although not to the level of the Brunello, it is still pretty tasty, and a lot cheaper.
Wine can be tasted and purchased all over Montalcino - there are numerous wine shops to browse and taste in, the largest of these is the Enoteca La Fortezza. Here you can buy and taste around 130 types of Brunello and many more other wines. Wines can be shipped for you all over the world.
