Constructed along a narrow Limestone ridge, Montepulciano is an exciting town on the hill. It is believed that Montepulciano was founded by the orders of the Etruscan king Porsenna.... more
Inside the town's walls, the streets are crowded with revitalized Palazzi and renovated churches. It is famous for its excellent local wine, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano wine.
The term Nobile is derived from its exceptional tantalizing taste, regularly produced by the noble families. This wine is obtained from Sangiovese grapes including the Canaiolo Nero and Prugnolo Gentile, with the additional grapes from other vineyards in the region. We leave the hotel or villa in Siena and province at 9.30 a.m.
We head towards the south and stop by Pienza, a town on the hilltop. The Pope Pius II initiated Pienza town. We will appreciate the beautiful views of the valley Orcia from the benighted path, enjoy a leisure stroll through the tiny streets with plenty of shops stocked with classic products, including Pecorino cheese.
We will have lunch at a classic Tuscan trattoria. Delight in tasty Tuscan meals prepared with extra virgin olive oil. We then head to a small winery for a second wine tasting. The winery produces abundant Nobile di Montepulciano wine and Super Tuscan which is stored in cellars.
We then stop over at Montefollonico, a small-sized fortified village with tiny houses. Here will visit an olden winery where the owner passionately creates exceptional Nobile di Montepulciano wine. We will visit the cellar, which goes way back to the 13th century and at a private wine tasting, we discover the old techniques used to produce this exciting wine. From the patio of the winery, we can admire the gorgeous view of the surrounding landscape.
We finally return to the hotel or villa at around 5.30 pm.
