Traveler reviews

The first time you go to Valdorcia, you hardly realize that you arrived into it.

From each direction, slowly the landscape becomes sweeter, the number of cars decreases, if you stop in a village for a Capuccino you feel the silence of this unique places.

Woods and stony soils are now replaced by the gentle clay hills cultivated with wheat that change colors every season.

Many greys and browns in winter when the earth is turned up waiting for the spring to come. Then everything changes into the green of the early threads of wheat. As this matures under the Tuscan sun, everything turns gold.

As in a fairy tale, you can immerse yourself into a peaceful place, of which you can feel the antique memory of its troubled history, sometimes tiring and sometimes glorious.

This is what you feel especially when you arrive in Montepulciano to enjoy a day and to taste its most refined product, the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.

Known since the Middle Ages this wine has had its original characteristics, with a fruity taste of red and black berries, produced with Sangiovese grapes, more precisely with a local clone called Prugnolo Gentile, often aged in French or Slovenian oak woods.

 

 

For this tour that we propose you will meet you at your accommodation and after about 90 minutes drive in your comfortable deluxe minivan you will easily reach the Valdorcia of which Montepulciano is the capital.

You will be immersed in the true Tuscan landscape and reach the first wine cellar outside the city walls.

The winemakers will be happy to welcome you and while visiting the vineyards and cellars, they will introduce you to the territory and methods of production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and its almost millenarian history as Montepulciano has Etruscan origins prior to the Roman era. A first wine tasting will follow which will introduce you to the characteristics of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano if you have not already tried it.

Vino Nobile is a product certified DOCG (Denomination of Origin Controlled and Guarantied) and its production is regulated by the Consorzio del Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, which establishes the rules of production and carries out analyses and controls on the characteristics and quality of the wine.

The first rule is that the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is made with at least 70% Sangiovese Prugnolo Gentile.

But, as in all of Tuscany, Supertuscan Wines, Vinsanto, white Tuscan wines are produced and international grapes are cultivated.

Following you will visit the old centre and stroll through the enchanting backstreets of the medieval town of Montepulciano, rich of architectures of the Renaissance age, when the master builders transformed themselves into artists by building the first real palaces for the Noble Families who already traded wine and extra virgin olive oil.

You will stop for lunch where you can taste the original food of the province of Siena, paired with one of the oldest and most appreciated reds in the world.

One of the peculiar characteristics of Montepulciano is that under the ancient palaces the cellars are still used to age the wine. Some of these noble residences offer the opportunity to be visited therefore we will organize your second tasting after descending  into the underground heart of Montepulciano where already the Etruscans dig in the limestone, safe caves to save from incursions the precious "Nectar of Gods".

In the afternoon we will guide you through the hills painted in the colors of wheat and we will return slowly home and you will have time to take pictures of the countryside of Montepulciano that, we are sure, you will never forget.

Obviously we can organize the day to include the visit of 3 cellars or to stop to see the village of Pienza. If you already know wine estates you want to visit, we will be happy to book your visit for you. Otherwise, we will propose some solutions.
