The staff at the wine shop were very helpful. They showed us 7 types of wine and accompanied with crackers, then cheese. We eventually bought 2 cases. - 12 per case.

For a special evening in the medieval restaurant in the fortress, with a romantic terrace, it need's a reservation , nice in the evening, but also for a lunch; the cuisine in Montalcino is everywhere excellent, simple, but with special tastes and flavors. We had no reservation and so we don't try it.

Set on one side of the fort's yard and at the entrance to climb the fort, this is a good place for a lunch snack and some wine tasting. But be careful purchasing your favourite wine thereafter, which we found to be significantly pricier than if you bought it at a normal wine merchant.

Whilst also a cafe and viewing point, this location operates as a serious wine merchant with some of the most amazing Brunello and Super Tuscan. The best collection in Montalcino and that takes some doing. The staff have amazing knowledge and you can ry almost anything before you buy which reduces risk

A friend recommended this place during my stay in Montalcino. Wine expert at la fortezza asked me what I liked and put together a nice wine flight for a modest 30 Euros. It was a hell of an experience to drink vino in an old fortress.

This is the quaint little wine bar / enoteca inside the Fortezza at Montalcino. We did a wine tasting there. The service was very good, we met Irald, who was super polite, knowledgeable and surprisingly very well travelled! The wine selection is quite vast, the enoteca is very charming and old style. With the wines you get some crackers and... More

We were here twice in 2 days during our Montalcino stay, Lapo took care of us once and a lovely friendly blonde woman. They really do have the very best selection of Brunello wines on the planet. Plus the food is fantastic. They set us up on a table outside in the sun and we enjoyed sampling many great wines... More

While we thoroughly enjoy Brunnello's, they really do not fit in our budget very often. So was nice to spend some time tasting. We purchased the higher end tasting to share and the sommelier brought additional wines to taste, both expensive and those that were more in line with our wallet. The appetizers to complement the wine are also delicious... More

Expensive wine, expensive tasting, great setting and friendly service that seems to make the effort to please their guests. I tasted 3 "top" wines of the region (their label). Biondi Santi was one, Drago and one other I can't remember. The cost of this tasting was nearly 20 euro which is exceptionally expensive for the area, however the wines were... More
