Laura is fantastic! She really cares about your experience. We visited 3 wineries in Montalcino and loved them all equally as each one has their own personality and experience. The story of Il Palazzone is quite interesting and their wines are superb.

Good tasting wines that locals are producing for the name “Parsons” on the bottle’s labels. The hospitality was good, although rushed when we visited unfortunately. After visiting other smaller family owned vineyards, this was not our favorite stop.

Esther provided an entertaining, interesting and valuable lesson in wine tasting, as well as the history of the vineyard, and the making of Brunello. All of us, ranging from wine drinker to wine connoisseur, enjoyed our time at Il Palazzone immensely. We will be back!!...More

This winery, very close to the city of Montalcino, makes some of the best Brunellos around. Their 2010 was incredible. Laura, the GM, loves to give you the true skinny about the locals.

Il Palazzone is just on the outskirts of Montalcino. I had a reservation and Laura, the wineries manager greeted us (5) warmly and gave the most informative tour starting at the edge of one of the wineries vineyards. We tasted three wines: Rosso Del Palazzone...More
