Guided Tour of Montalcino and Sant’Antimo

Montalcino Wine Tour: Guided Tour of Montalcino and its famous Wine

an enchanting village in the province of Siena that rises to 564 meters above sea level, the homeland of one of the most appreciated wines in the world: the Brunello di Montalcino.

During the  walking tour among the picturesque alleys of the village, we reach the Church of Sant’Agostino, where it be possible to visit the Diocesan Civic Museum of Sacred Art, which houses a rich collection of Sienese painting and sculpture. In the archaeological section, the finds and graphic reconstructions bear witness the settlements on the territory as early as the prehistoric times; then entering inside the church of Sant’Agostino we can admire the refined fourteenth-century frescoes, some of which were made by the Sienese painter Bartolo di Fredi.

Wine Tasting in the Medicean Fortress

We reach the core of Montalcino Wine Tour. From the Museum we will move to the Fortress, an imposing military building, which dominates the village from above a cliff; in this day the building houses a refined and well-stocked Enoteca. Here wine lovers can taste a glass of the best Brunello’s vintages.

Amazing views on Val d’Orcia and Maremma hills

From the Enoteca it is possible to climb upstairs, up to the walls of the fortress, from where view is amazing, from the Val d’Orcia extent to the Maremma hills. Break time is an excellent opportunity to have a visit one of a winery in the countryside, a way to learn more about the fascinating story of this wine, a tuscan pride in the world. From the vines and the vintage to the ageing in the oak barrels, during the Montalcino Wine Tour you will get to know every phase of the wine production.

Romanesque architecture in Tuscany: Abbey of Sant’Antimo

The itinerary ends at the Abbey of Sant’Antimo, an impressive example of Romanesque architecture in Tuscany. Walking through the aisles of the church, we can still breathe the mystical atmosphere of a remote time when the images carved in stone – like those which still pop out from the walls of the abbey – were full of meanings that in this day partly escape, symbols of a distant Middle Ages that continue to captivate the visitors from everywhere.
