What you'll do
You'll jump right into the wine heaven, with hundreds of bottles all around you. After a quick look, I'll bring you down in the cellar where we will start with the tasting. The bottles we will open are not the same bottles that every shop offers for an easy tasting, but my bottles are really great and selected between hundreds of producers. At first I'll give an overview on Tuscan wines than we will go deeper in each denomination; for each wine I'll tell you the features and the story behind it. Of course I'll tell you also the best way to pair food with wine and during the tasting you'll have also some local cheese to pair with . My purpose is to make you falling in love with this world, giving you an emotion and an unique experience in an 800 years old cellar, a jump in the true medieval Siena. After the tasting we will go up in the shop where , if you want, I'll help you in selecting wines to send back home ( always bottles hard to find or not exported due to the small amount made ).
Hi, my name is Federico and I own and run my wine-shop " Cantina del Brunello " since 1998. I became professional Sommelier in 2004. This is my job but also my passion. I'm specialized in Brunello di Montalcino, Supertuscans, Chianti Classico, Nobile di Montepulciano. ( around 900 labels ) ( but also Barolo and Amarone ) In my shop ( in the heart of Siena ) I have a Medieval cellar ( 13th Century ) where I do personalized wine tastings. I select high-end wines, rare vintages, wines that can be found only here. After the tasting I offer my help to create private cellars selecting wines to send back home. Infact I have a shipper , specialized in wine, to send it almost everywhere in the world. To give you an idea, I have around 700 usual customers just in USA ( where, by the way , I've been to run wine-tastings several times )

Where you'll be
The shop is located in the center of Siena, a few steps from parkings and a few steps from averything in town. The name of the street is "Via della Sapienza 66" The first part of the shop is dated 400 years ago, than, thorough a tunnel we reach the tasting cellar that is 800 years old, the oldest part is an "Etruscan tumb" excavated in the tipical soil of Siena called Tufo ( similar to sandstone ) from 600 years B.C.
