Tuscany Day 8: Wine Touring in Montalcino

One of the highlights of this trip was a wine tour of Montalcino - we went to three small vineyards, makers of the famous Brunello, and got a tour of the surrounding countryside as well. The wines were wonderful (we hauled home more than three crates), and the sites were unforgettable.
