The history and layout of Montepulciano, nicknamed the “Pearl of the Renaissance”, derives from its strategic position. The town is located south of the province of Siena, between the Valdichiana and Val d'Orcia (at 605m), and was always coveted by Florence, Siena, Perugia and Orvieto. Today, it is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, and is home to 15,000 inhabitants over an area of 165 square-kilometres. From the tower of its city hall, on a clear day you can see the Gran Sasso d'Italia. Moreover, Montepulciano is close to many artistic towns like Pienza, Chiusi, Cortona and Assisi.
The history and fame of the area of Montepulciano is thanks to the production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG, a wine of excellent quality and one of the most ancient wines in Italy. Other types of local wine that are promoted and safeguarded by the consortium are Rosso di Montepulciano DOC and Vinsanto di Montepulciano DOC. There are also the Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG and Valdichiana Vergine DOC. The Extra Virgin Olive Oil from this area is an important product and is often found with the DOP Terre di Siena certification. Other food products include pecorino cheese, marmalade from the Masciana Susina or Coscia di Monaca, Chianina beef, and Cinta Senese salami.
In addition to wine tours of the farms where Vino Nobile is produced, the Vino Nobile Tour offers visits to points of interest in the city of Montepulciano and surrounding towns, and wine-tasting at the many monumental cellars of the town, as well as visits to the small craft shops, tastings of wine and typical products at the enotheques, restaurants, dairies and olive presses, courses in wine and oil tasting, cooking lessons, spa treatments, itineraries for bicyclists and hikers and tours of movie sets. Montepulciano is the ideal place for a vacation in hotel or guest far, as a starting point toward spas like Bagno Vignoni, San Casciano dei Bagni, Etruscan settlements (Chiusi, Cortona), rural zones like Val d'Orcia and Crete (famous for its truffles) and Mount Amiata, as well as the many charming towns scattered through the area.
