Brunello/Rosso di Montalcino

montalcino-view.jpgBy dalem CC2.0

The view of medieval Tuscan town of Montalcino from the vineyards below is spectacular, as is the view of down to those vineyards from the city walls. Something about the Sangiovese from this small appellation is special, and makes Brunello di Montalcino one of the great wines of Italy. Don't want to spend big on a Brunello? You can still enjoy a wonderful Rosso di Montalcino at a very reasonable price.
