Wine Weekend in Tuscany Wine Weekend in Tuscany

February is considered Low Season in Tuscany, so it’s a good month to:
- enjoy the region in a quieter atmosphere 
-  save money and get a great deal
- discover the new Brunello wines which will be presented during the Benvenuto Brunello 2014 Wine Festival.
 
There aren’t any Tuscany lovers on the planet that don't know the Chianti wine. Actually, it is the most famous Italian wine, but it is not the only one that is worth a sip! As you can read in our previous post “Top 5 Wines in Tuscany”, among the main Tuscan families of grapes, Sangiovese is one of the most ancient Italian varieties and is certainly one of the most widely grown in Tuscany region. Sangiovese is used to make Brunello di Montalcino, one of the most appreciated red wines in the world, prized and praised by important wine critics, wine collectors and wine lovers.
 
Benvenuto Brunello 2014 is a fair organized by Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino. It takes place this year in Montalcino on February, 21st-24th.
