Brunello in a wonderful Tuscan restaurant near Montalcino

What a pleasure it is to have that wonderful combination of good foood, great wine and a stunning ambience.

We recently had that combination in a fabulous restaurant just outside the town of Montalcino called Boccon di Vino

Run by Dad and two daughters this restaurant has the most magical views of the Val D'Orcia. Go on a warm day or balmy summer night to enjoy the al fresco dining experience.

 This is the view from your table looking out toward Siena and beyond

Wonderful ambience

And popular.... a good mix of locals and visitors

And THE WINE is the Biondi Santi that a 1982 Riserva?

Also a great selection of Rosso di Montalcino

The ritualistic opening and glass cleansing process. Starting to get thirsty!

Ahhh, yes, the San Polo 2007 was a very good vintage from a very good winemaker

And almost forgot the food. At the end of the evening we had some aged pecorino with the brunello. A perfect combination

Ciao a tutti
