Like an island in the heart of Tuscany, the hill of Montalcino offers the flavour of a gradual conquest to those who ascend from the valleys surrounding it.
Perhaps for the location, away from the crowded highways, or, perhaps for the purity of the air that pervades its beautiful panorama that is still intact; rugged and wild. Truly, a visit to Montalcino provides a host of propositions involving that magical relationship between man and nature as well as having the rare quality of being absolutely spontaneous.
The people of this town, having always dedicated themselves to working the woods and fields, have also enjoyed moments of glory during the struggle for communal liberty in the sixteenth century, resisting long the sieges of the French and Spanish.
But undoubtedly, the best image that Montalcino reveals, thanks to its most precious gift of this hard yet generous land ,is its wine. Already widely appreciated in past centuries, the wine production remained faithful to the canons of proven reliability of Tuscan tradition.
It was only towards the end of the last century that the first experiments began to improve and exalt the characteristics of a raw material and an environment that was, without a doubt, quite special.
Hence came forth Brunello and still today it hails from tenacious dedication, and loving attention during the years of aging in the cellar before being presented to the world. The world that has, in turn, learned to love it , the beginning and the end of a legend that each bottle renews .
