  • Montalcino Wedding

A Montalcino wedding will bring you to a still intact and gentle meditteranean nature with soft hills stippled by rows of cypresses, olive groves and neverending "formation of vineyard" as an ancient army of Medieval knight.

Like an island in the heart of Tuscany, the hill of Montalcino offers to those who ascend from the valleys surrounding it the feeling of a gradual conquest, the sense of arriving in a snug harbour.Perhaps, because of its geographical position, far from the crowded highways, or, perhaps, because of the purity of the air, Montalcino provides a host of stimuli for the imaginations of those who visit it, involving them in that magical relation between man and nature that, here, has the rare quality of being absolutely spontaneous.

Montalcino has a typical Medieval aspect with visible traces of the Siena domination, where you can admire ancient palaces and churches like the Communal Palace (built between the 13th and 14th centuries), the five sided Fortress (from the 14th century) and the church of Sant'Agostino (from the 14th century). And only a few miles from Montalcino you can enjoy the visit of the wonderful Sant'Antimo abbey, a solitary jewel that present a Tuscan Romanesque architecture. The ancient splendour of the Benedectine order is reflected in the magnificently powerful lines of this 12th century Romanesque-Cistercian abbey church.

But certainly the best image of Montalcino is revealed primarily by wine, the most precious gift of a land that is at the same time hard and generous. Already widely appreciated in past centuries, the oenological production remained faithful to the canons of proven reliability of Tuscan tradition.

It was only toward the end of last century that the first experiments where begun in order to improve and exalt the characteristics of a raw material and an environment no doubt quite special. Thus was born Brunello, as it is still created today, the fruit of a tenacious dedication, of loving watchfulness during the years of ageing in the winery before it is presented to a world that has learned, in its turn , to love it. It is the end and beginning of a legend that each bottle renews.

If you are planning a wedding in Italy and you love the peaceful and relexing atmosphere of the Tuscan countryside you will be captured by Montalcino that moreover offers you plenty of different options for your wedding's receptions and cerimonies that will satisfy all your desires.
