A Red Montalcino Evening to Enjoy
“We thought,” says the president of the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino, Fabrizio Bindocci, “of an inclusive event also for winelovers capable of highlighting the versatile and identity-driven soul of a product that is reaching full qualitative maturity. And the results are evident. Red Montalcino will be hosted for the first time in the symbolic Sienese Fortress, and here the storytelling will be entrusted directly to the producers and their wines.”
The opening of the second edition of Red Montalcino is focused on a walk-around tasting with 70 producersstarting at 6pm, followed by the opening of food corners with regional, vegan and fusion food specialties starting at 8pm. Then at 9 pm the collective wine bar with sommelier service will be open, while mixology will be the star of the evening beginning at 10pm.
Also enlivening Red Montalcino’s under-the-stars format will be a musical schedule featuring “Unconventional Singers,” “Matteo Addabbo Organ Trio,” “A little band in a minute” and “Greta Tedeschi DJ set.”
