"The Big One" VIP Wine Tour to Bolgheri and Pisa "Ornellaia and San Sicaia”

HIGHLIGHTS: VIP - Wine tour departure points from Florence, Pisa, Livorno, Lucca, Forte dei Marmi, (other Tuscany’s cities on request).

In this VIP Wine Tour sometimes refered to as "The Big One", you’ll have the opportunity to visit a farm producing one of the most important wines in the world from the vineyards of Bolgheiri in Livorno Province. There you will have the opportunity to do a wine tasting that pits two Titans of Tuscany wines ‘San Sicaia and Ornellaia’.

Ornellaia: the Bordeaux Bled with a good portion of Merlot in its composition, the magic touch of Michel Rolland, luxurious new oak (70% versus 33% of Sassi) and a fuller, perhaps riper character.

The farm tour includes a cellar guided tour that winds through the various processing areas and storage of products, from the cellar with oak barrels, the underground cellar, until arriving to the area of aging and the current winery. Along the way many machinery no longer in use evidences the old methods of bottling, filtering, labeling and capping. Every object has a story to tell that will take voice thanks to the knowledge of the guide.

After the vineyard’s visit, you'll be off to finish your day tour with a visit to the world famous Leaning Tower and the Miracles square in Pisa.
