Montalcino, which has become rich and famous thanks to Brunello, one of the best Italian wines and one of the most popular in the world, is just an hour's drive from Borgo tra gli Olivi. But Montalcino is not just wine, it is also art and culture. The historic center is dominated by the mighty Rocca, a fortress built in 1361 as if to mark the passage of the city under the dominion of Siena. The view from the ramparts of the fortress is truly spectacular.
Nearby, absolutely not to be missed, is a visit to the ancient abbey of Sant’Antimo.
