In Montalcino with Prince Charles

The Prince of Wales, a notorious admirer of Tuscany and its wines given that prestigious vintages of Brunello have often been served at official dinners by Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace, could not miss Montalcino on his numerous visits to the region. Charles visited the first time in the 80s in the company of the Frescobaldi Marquises, Bona and Vittorio. He has since returned, but on the first day of his stay in Montalcino, the Prince stopped in at the Antica Fiaschetteria, historic Art Nouveau locale which, with its period furniture, has been an obligatory stop for visitors for decades, followed by an enjoyable walk along the main streets of the town. Reports from the time state that he naturally did not miss out on tasting typical local dishes nor the essential Brunello
