The cellar “De’ Ricci” is located in the heart of the Montepulciano’s historical center, a short walk from Piazza Grande, below the Renaissance Palace “Ricci”, built by the Sienese architect Baldassarre Peruzzi, on commission of Cardinal Giovanni Ricci. The Palace houses the eponymous cellar, which allows you to appreciate the care and wisdom lavished by the noble Ricci family (now died out) in the production of wine in this extraordinary land. The cellar, whose architectural structure is reminiscent of a Gothic cathedral, during the visit, organized by the Enoteca Italiana Senese [Italian Sienese Wine Shop], of a group of highly qualified international professionals, has been called «The most beautiful cellar in the world» [article available on «Bell’Italia» n ° 95, March 1994].
Open: daily, from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.; in the winter period, the days, and the opening and closing times, are subject to change, so we suggest that you get in touch directly with the cellar to make sure of it.
