Dive into the world of winemaking at Podere Brizio, a 33-hectare property in Montalcino located 40 km from the sea. Its 11.5 hectares of vineyards, planted entirely with Sangiovese at an altitude of around 350 meters, benefit from the sea breeze that constantly touches them.
Descend from Montalcino towards Podere Brizio and you will notice that the vegetation changes, assuming the typical characteristics of the Mediterranean scrub with its myrtle, strawberry tree and holm-oak. Enjoy a small oasis of peace among vineyards and olive groves where you can taste elegant wines.
Visit the winery of Podere Brizio for an in-depth look at the three fundamentals of local wine production: the vineyards, the fermentation facility and the cellar. You will discover the characteristics of the Sangiovese wine and the qualities of a territory that is its ideal habitat; the guide will also teach you the secrets of a sustainable agricultural production, which aims to preserve the balance of the territory. You will finally learn about the process of spontaneous fermentation and aging of Brunello di Montalcino in large French oak barrels.
The tour ends at the small and intimate tasting room overlooking the vineyards, where you will taste the wines from Podere Brizio: Rosso di Montalcino, Brunello di Montalcino and Brunello di Montalcino Riserva.
