Val d’Orcia is probably the best groomed area in Tuscany. The hills show the care that generations of peasants have been applying to the soil with equal dedication for centuries. Here is where one of the most celebrated grapes is grown. Sangiovese is the name of the vine that yields a famous wine. Brunello owes its name to its somber color and to an old village of this land: Montalcino.

La Val d’Orcia è  probabilmente la zona più curata di tutto il panorama toscano. Le colline ostentano la cura dedicata al territorio dai contadini con la stessa attenzione nel corso delle generazioni. In quest’area viene coltivato il vitigno di Sangiovese che produce il vino più famoso. Il Brunello deve il suo nome al suo colore scuro e a un antico borgo di questa terra: Montalcino.
