Truly an ancient town dating back in written historical records to the 9th Century B.C. Set within a full circle of fortified walls and watched over by a mighty castle of medieval perfection, the town has scarcely changed in appearance since the 16th century. Montalcino, is a beautiful village immersed in the breathtaking Val d’Orcia Natural Park.
The town takes its name from a variety of oak tree that once blanketed the terrain. The dizzying heights of the town offer stunning views over the Asso, Ombrone and Arbia valleys of Tuscany, dotted with silvery olive orchards, vineyards, fields and villages.
Expansive vineyards and olive groves dominate the lower slopes of Montalcino hill itself. Renowned worldwide for the production of its precious Brunello red wine, this fairytale village is a feast for the eyes, the senses, and the taste-buds.
