15 May - Brunello wines and Val d'Orcia 

Today’s drive is really a tour of two halves.  The morning is all about driving some of the best mountain roads in southern Tuscany, and the afternoon exploring the wine region of Brunello.  Departing Umbria, the drive starts with a run through the nature reserve close by to Monte Rufeno, before looping north, and picking up the tight and twisty roads through dense forests to the summit of Monte Amiata, the highest mountain in Tuscany.  We take a well-earned coffee at the Rifugio Vetta, then after, make the short 7min trek to the very summit with its iconic radio station mast, shaped like a cross.
