Our tour starts with a suggestive drive. Along the way, we'll pass nearby some of the historical and majestic countryside Villas of Lucca, constructed by rich nobles, from 16th century onwards, to relax during the summer season. Then, we will follow a winding road to reach the medieval village of Montecarlo that overlooks the sunny profile of the hills, offering a most scenic view!
Special visit of the little hamlet, characterised by one of the most glorious fortress of all the Lucchesia! You will notice the noble red stone which underlines the crenelled tower and the encircling wall of the castle, before being definitely ready to enjoy the wine experience!
In the wine estate, you will be able to discover the different phases employed for the wine making as well as for the production of extra-virgin olive oil. There will be a visit of the wine cellars too. Before taking a seat to enjoy the tasting, you can choose to walk along the rows of vineyards and those of the suggestive olive trees.
The tasting will let you love the Montecarlo wine, which received the Doc certification (the origin of the grapes used is controlled), for red&white wine. You will taste few different vintages and you'll be delighted by the Tuscan 'crostini', among which there will be a tasty 'bruschetta' with extra-virgin olive oil. You will also taste salami and pecorino cheese before enjoying the sweetest thing: Cantucci biscuits and typical Tuscan sweet dessert wine!
