The Region

Located in picturesque Tuscany, Montalcino is known for producing the esteemed Brunello di Montalcino wine, made from the Sangiovese grape. It is a rather arid region, with one of the warmest and driest climates in Tuscany. The terrain is densely wooded in areas, with some vineyard sites benefitting from the maritime influence of the sea. There is an incredible diversity in terroir across the region, with varied soils from volcanic to limestone to clay that produce very unique wines.
