TOUR DESCRIPTION

We are proud to propose you the best wine tour in montepulciano. If you reserve your montepulciano winery tour with toursintuscany we will reach you in the morning at your accommodation and you will begin you Montepulciano wine tour from Florence or from your place in any Tuscany towns with about 90 minutes drive in your comfortable deluxe minivan so that you will easily reach the Valdorcia region.

Montepulciano, one of the most beautiful Tuscany town, has etruscan origins dating back to 600 bC is built on the top of sandstone hill and protected by walls.

During your journey you will be immersed in the true Tuscan Countryside made of green hills where Tuscan Villas and typical Tuscan Coutryhouses have been built. You will be surrounded by montepulciano vineyards, olive grows and at the end of your first drive you will reach the first montepulciano winery in the region immediately outside the city.

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, the Montepulciano Wine and its almost millenarian history as nobile di Montepulciano has Etruscan origins prior to the Roman era. A first Montepulciano wine tasting will follow which will introduce you to the characteristics of Vino Nobile. You will be proposed with some different wines and vintages usually starting from young to old wines from regular productions to special reserves wines.

Vino Nobile, the Montepulciano Wine, 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 most important rule is that the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is made with at least 70% Sangiovese Prugnolo Gentile.

Montepulciano Wineries also produce Supertuscan Blended Wines, Vinsanto, white Tuscan wines, all made of international grapes, that you can try.

Following the advices of your driver you will discover the things to do in Montepulciano. 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 became artists by building the first real palaces for the local Noble Families who were already trading wine and extra virgin olive oil.

You will stop for lunch in town where you will taste the original Tuscan food of the province of Siena, paired with Montepulciano wine Vino Nobile, one of the oldest and most appreciated reds in the world.

One of the peculiar characteristics of Montepulciano is that cellars under the ancient palaces 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.

CULTURAL NOTES

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 valley.

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.
