We wanted to purchase some Chianti from local producers and visited several merchants on our trip to Siena. The staff in Cantina del Brunello we’re very friendly, knowledgeable and made the buying process fun. We are looking forward to receiving our order, which we hope lives up to our expectations. If it does we shall order more.

Three of us visited in October 2019 and took a walking tour of Sienna (to be reviewed separately). This was our last stop of the day and it was the BEST! Frederico was so welcoming, charming, and helpful. We were able to taste many, many red and white wine options. He took notes as to what notes we liked or didn't and has done a fantastic job in choosing wines to send to us.

The cellar at the back of the store that they recently discovered was incredible. Definitey added ambiance to the storefront atmosphere.

We ended up joining the wine club and have been very excited to receive our shipments every three months. He has chosen wisely for us and my husband that is not a wine fan LOVES the Chianti Reserva 2012 and the Grappa di Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is my savior.

Thank you Frederico - we love you and miss you - and can't wait to visit again.

A must visit in Siena!

An absolute treasure! Federico is a wonderful host and teacher! We learned so much in a short amount of time. He was very interested in learning more about us and suggested wines from there. So happy he is able to ship to the US! We look forward to visiting again and enjoying the wines Federico suggested for us.

Good place to buy wines in Siena city centre

We were exploring the shops and checked out Cantina del Brunello. The owner Frederico was very knowledgeable and shared with us the various types of Italian wines and the wines in the Tuscany region.

He has a good range of Brunellos, and his prices were reasonable. We were after Vino Nobile and the wine he recommended was really good.

One of the Highlights
Jul 2018 • Couples
Big selection and good prices. I ordered a case and can’t wait for it to arrive. The owner, Federico, is very knowledgeable about the wine as well as local restaurants and wineries. He was a concierge as well as a wine expert, providing many great recommendations for our visit to Siena.

Wine shipments
Nov 2017 • Solo
Very slow to deliver (6 weeks) and double charged for delivery ($110.00 each time). No response or recompense from owner. Beware of friendly nonchalance.

Hidden Costs- Be careful
May 2016 • Couples
My holiday in beautiful Italy has been tainted by my wine purchase experience in this shop. The owner of Cantina Del Brunello, Federico sold me 12 bottles of wine in late May and assured me that his delivery costs are all inclusive of duties and taxes. He impressed upon me that he is familiar with Singapore as he has several customers there. I was then quoted a sum of 109 euros (which he wrote on the invoice) as all inclusive delivery costs. I was therefore shocked to learn that I have been billed more than 280 euros when I received my credit card bill in Singapore just for the wine delivery ( excluding the wine costs!) . I have written several times to Federico and sadly there was no reply.
It is also unfortunate that I did not read an earlier review in late 2015 that also detailed such dishonest and irresponsible behavior. Be careful and think twice should one decide to ship wine back home if you ever deal with Federico

Also here, you asked a friend to write a bad review, but you made another mistake. from what you wrote up here: ".......... It is also unfortunate that I did not read an earlier review in late 2015 that also detailed such dishonest and irresponsible behavior." As all customers can see, I registered my shop on trip advisor in 2016..... so, it's impossible that you read a review from 2015.......... Again I say that the review is for another shop in Montalcino and not in Siena. NOT ME.
