31/01/2014 - Brunello di Montalcino - wine from Tuscany


MOC 2014 - Mediterranean Open Championship, in Tuscany from 13th to 15TH March, Brunello di Montalcino is one Italy's most famous and prestigious wines in the world. In Tuscany, its homeland, it shares the top spot with only ...the highly-prized Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and of course the ubiquitous Chianti. All Brunello di Montalcino wine is made exclusively from Sangiovese grapes grown on the slopes around Montalcino a classic Tuscan hilltop village 20 miles (30km) south of Siena. The word Brunello translates roughly as 'little dark one', and is the local vernacular name for Sangiovese Grosso, the large-berried form of Sangiovese which grows in the area.
