Poggio alle Mura, Montalcino

Poggio alle Mura, Montalcino

Set among hundreds of acres of vineyards, olive groves, and lakes, this ninth-century castle has been sensitively restored. It’s modest in size, perfect in proportion with a double courtyard and elegant tower. Today it houses luxurious hotel suites, a trattoria, a wine shop, and a fascinating glass museum with pieces dating back to the Phoenicians.
