My husband and I stayed 3 nights in the villa. We were greeted by the host, Marialuce with a big smile and the best wine in Montalcino - BRUNELLO which was produced by them. The next day, we had the pleasure to meet her daughter, Benedetta who is the wine-maker. She gave us a lot of information about wine making and wine tasting. Besides, she gave us some recommendations on the restaurants where we had good food.
We had Brunello ( wine tasting ) everyday. End up we bought quite a lot back home.
The negative thing is the bed which is a bit soft for us ( we are used to have a hard one ).
