“Good Selection of Wines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

We were in Montalcino for a day trip, and visited this Enoteca after having read the good recommendations on TripAdvisor. We were certainly not disappointed. The place has a good selection of wines. As we are not wine experts, the guy who serviced us explained the different wines, and recommended some wines for us to taste. We finally settled for a bottle of Brunello di Montalcino 2007. We will definitely drop by again if we are in Montalcino the next time.

“Best wine tasting in Montalcino”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

The owners Nicolo and Linda were so kind to visit us at the villa in Montalcino where we stayed. We were overwhelmed by their expertise, kindness and service levels. All in all, we enjoyed a wonderful evening full of delicious wines and great stories about Brunello wines from Montalcino. BTW; their English is impeccable.

“I Thoroughly recommend this to try or buy your Italian wines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2013 via mobile

We found this place ourselves although later noticed our hotel Suite d Artistes had recommended it . We were a served by a guy named Samuela who looked younger than a lot of the wines . Boy though he was helpful and very knowledgeable with experience well above his years he was soon steering us through the mine field of ove a hundred Brunello's . The enoteca had a vacuum system which gave you a charge card and then you then poured yourself from over a hundred mid/ upper range wines charging the card as you go ....heaven !!!

We found the experience in itself wonderful , but people who wanted to buy, we found the range great , the knowledge and service first rate and the pricing very competitive . We therefore made all our Montalcino wine purchases there . We bought about 25 bottles and although we had driven from London we took advantage of the free shipping offer and had some shipped home . A thoroughly pleasant few hours and one that I believe will reward me for many years to come .

“The Best Enoteca”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013

Having been to Montalcino several times before and various Enoteca's, this is a real gem. You can taste something like 100 wines from every day wines to the very best on offer. The staff is very helpful and will quickly direct you to something that satisfies your taste. Certain wines can be shipped to the US for free. Be prepared to spend money here, as the choices will leave you wanting to buy more than you can possible drink.

“Enoteca wine room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2013

They came to us in S/W France to give a wine tasting and talk and it was very interesting and their knowledge extensive. The wines they brought were all good to excellent giving us a chance to sample Brunello wines with a meal. So with their shop having a greater selection i would think it a great place to taste the wines of the area.
