Day 2 - Montalcino and the land of Brunello

The first day start climbing up to Castiglion del Bosco, one of the most challenging segments of L’Eroica permanent route, you will reach Montalcino, which sits over the beautiful and panoramic lands of the home of Brunello di Montalcino. Montalcino, also famous for olive oil and honey, is a nice village that merits a visit, even just to admire the incredible panorama views on the Val d’Orcia area. The descent from Montalcino will be a devine dive into vineyards, bringing you through smooth, pristine hills until Lucignano d’Asso, where we'll have a typical Eroica foodstop. Pedaling in the landscape of the Val d'Orcia is a privilege for the eyes and mind that revives you despite the strain of constant hills roads.

The cycling journey includes also a wine tour and tasting in a Brunello winery.

Dinner and accommodation in the same farmhouse, start and arrival of the stage.

From the vineyards and rolling hills to the suggestion of the lunar landscape is a short step. Left the villages along the Cassia we'll immerge in the Crete Senesi region with the characteristic gullies.
