La Fortezza Wine Shop and Wine Bar: one of the first wine shop/wine bars in Montalcino. Founded in 1980 by Mario Pianigiani and Marzio Giannelli, the only one inside the main tower of the medieval fortress of Montalcino.
At the time, Mario and Marzio had already understood the future economic development of Montalcino, in a time when the producers of Brunello were no more than 30.
Over the years, the wine shop has grown and has become a landmark, a showroom for this famous wine.
In 2002, Enoteca La Fortezza passed to another DOC Montalcino resident: Fabio Tassi.
Since then Fabio Tassi managed the enoteca with great enthusiasm by continuing to offer a wide selection and quality of Brunello di Montalcino and other Tuscan wines.
