The magical atmosphere of the holiday season dedicated to the flavours of the territories where the excellent wines of Tuscany are grown. Toast the new year with DOC wines, living a special day in the Tuscan tradition or an opportunity to think about presents for under the tree, it's all possible. The protagonists are Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Chianti Classico. And the best place to understand the quality of these products is in the place where they are produced—their unique characteristics are a fundamental aspect of the soul of this region.
The Chianti countryside boasts a postcard-perfect landscape, where the colours of the sky and land mix together and Chianti Classico is born. Greve, Radda, Gaiole and Monteriggioni are the places where the best reds in the world are grown. Its incomparable quality is due not only the exceptional land, but also to the producers who have kept traditional techniques alive in their practice.
The kingdom of Brunello di Montalcino offers the chance to savour this famous, vivacious red in a fairytale lnadscape where rolling hills and extended vineyards enclose some of the art-historical pearls of Tuscany. From Siena, the city of the palio and a world patrimony of humaity, a voyage through the most beautiful medieval villages, where the middle ages are still in the air. Strolling through the centres of Castelnuovo Berardenga, Trequanda and Montalcino, it is easy to alternate tastings in the best taverns with explorations of the towns' monuments.
Historical roots and rich flavour distinguish Nobile di Montepulciano. The splendid architecture of the enchanted village of Montepulciano and Chiusi, the oldest Etruscan city in this area, are examples of the unbreakable tie between this top wine and its territory.
