Known in every part of the world and appreciated even by the most refined palates, the Brunello is certainly one of the most celebrated Tuscan excellences.
The so-called "Gold of Montalcino" is the absolute protagonist of the Temple of Brunello, an immersive and emotional journey to discover the king of wines and the territory where it is born.
The experience starts from InChiostro, a space where, by means of a station equipped with virtual reality visors, it is possible to completely plunge in the territory of Val D'Orcia.
Passing through the cloister, one descends into an underground environment: here too, thanks to videos and films, one can discover the secrets that have made Brunello unique in the world.
Also in the cloister - at the Enoteca Bistrot del Tempio del Brunello - it is possible to share and finish the experience through an interactive showcase from which, after a series of questions about one's temperament, the visitor is guided in the choice of the Brunello most in line with one's personality.
Another place that cannot be missed is the Truffle Museum in San Giovanni d'Asso, a small and characteristic village located between the Crete Senesi and the Val d'Orcia.
The first Italian museum dedicated to this precious fruit of the earth and housed in the evocative basement of an ancient castle, offers an exhibition that winds its way through vaults and walls that still preserve traces of frescoes from the early 14th century.
The museum uses immediate exhibition forms to offer the visitor the chance to undertake a pleasant journey into the complex world of the truffle.
The first section is dedicated to the "Mystery of the truffle", the second, "The truffle and the senses", provides sensory and engaging experiences through paths that affect touch, hearing and taste until you get to "odorama", a true carousel dedicated to the sense of smell.
There is also a section dedicated to the many uses of truffles on the table.
