Montepulciano

This 16th century Tuscan jewel, situated between Valdichiana and the Val d’Orcia, is the birthplace of the humanist poet Agnolo Poliziano. The main street leads through the old town centre up to the Piazza Grande, where visitors are greeted with three distinct centuries of art history: the 15th century Town Hall, with its imposing tower; the 16th century town well, with its griffins and lions, and the Renaissance palazzos; and the 17th century cathedral, with its unfinished facade. The Crociani Civic Museum and Gallery exhibits masterpieces of painting and sculpture, including a portrait attributed to Caravaggio and terracotta works by Andrea della Robbia. Another local jewel, a ruby this time, reposes in the coolness of the town’s cellars: the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano was the first Italian red wine to be awarded the prestigious DOCG denomination.
