"Leccio d'Oro" prize

Every year the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino awards a prize called Leccio d’Oro.

The prize is divided into three sections: Restaurants, Wine Shops/ Wine Bars and Bistros. 

The prizes are awarded to the places that have a Wine List with a wide well represented range of Brunello di Montalcino and the other Montalcino wines covering both the various vintages and numerous labels from many different estates.

The service and the presentation will also be taken into account, with reference to the particular demands of Brunello di Montalcino wine and of four components chosen by both Italian and foreign experts who have a recognised competence in the field of food and wine.

The prizes will be awarded every year in February, during the “BENVENUTO BRUNELLO” event.

Every prize consists in a plaque, a 4 day stay in Montalcino for two as well as a gift package of 72 bottles of Brunello di Montalcino, 36 bottles of Rosso di Montalcino, 12 bottles of Moscadello di Montalcino and 24 bottles of Sant’Antimo from different producers.
