Part of our family produces one of the best wines in Italy, if not the
world: I’m talking about the Montalcino Brunello wine. Those relatives of mine own the “Le Chiuse” winery, and they have recently been awarded the 2 nd prize by the Wine Enthusiast list of the best wines in the world! Needless to say, I can easily arrange for you a tour of their vineyards and cellar – including, of course, wine tasting. Simonetta Valiani, the owner, is a descendant of Ferruccio Biondi Santi, the man who first produced the current version of Brunello in the late 1800’s – and she knows what she’s doing!
