Montepulciano

Montepulciano

Grown mostly in clay, the Sangiovese grapes of this medieval hill town yield a robust, signature wine—Vino Nobile di Montepulciano—that’s perfect with roast meats and venison. The winemaking tradition here goes back 1,000 years; the town itself is fabled, and the views from it are mesmerizing. Could there be any better reasons to visit?
