After the USA, Italy and Germany, the 2019 calendar provides for Brunello a visit to the Far East, in Japan. Previously in the capital, Tokyo, on May 27th, at the evocative Happo-en garden, and then in Osaka, on May 29th, at the Hotel Monterey Osaka. During the two events, promoted by the Consortium of Wine Brunello di Montalcino 20 wineries from Montalcino will present the new vintages of Brunello, Brunello Riserva, Rosso di Montalcino, Moscadello and Sant’Antimo.
