The picturesque fourteenth-century Fortress of Montalcino will be the site of the Italian edition of Benvenuto Brunello 2009, to be held on February 20 and 21. For the Italian edition, the event is open first to journalists who will be tasting the 2004 Brunello di Montalcino and the 2007 Rosso di Montalcino for the first time. Then the event is also open to the general public: more than 2,000 visitors will attend each day of the event.
Benvenuto Brunello was first held in 1993 in Italy and 2001 was the first year it was held in the United States.
The Fortress or Fortezza is also the home to the Enoteca La Fortezza or La Fortezza Wine Shop and Bar, where you can taste a number of wines from our region all year round.
