The history of Brunello di Montalcino and its production area

 

Tuscan Brunello di Montalcino wine has long and prestigious tradition: here we try to retrace its origins, at the same time we highlight where to buy Brunello di Montalcino.

The name Brunello was first coined around 1820 when the Biondi Santi Family made the historically important decision to begin making wines from a single grape variety: Sangiovese grosso - a local variety from around the area of Montalcino. 

The name Brunello has a very simple etymology: it is the diminutive form of the Italian word bruno which means brown in English. The name seems to be in reference to the color of the berries and eventually became the name of the famous wine.
