Combining art, stunning views and first-class wine and food, this tour is often described by our guests as “a feat for the senses”.
Montepulciano is an attractive Medieval town to the south-east of Siena, home to the famous Vino Nobile vineyards. A long-time ally of Florence against Siena in the Middle Ages, it is home to some impressive artworks and pieces of architecture.
The main grape used to produce Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is Prugnolo Gentile, a variety of Sangiovese. During this private day tour, you can expect to also taste the typical Rosso di Montepulciano DOC and mature Riserva wine, as well as some Vin Santo dessert wine.
Red wine lovers who wish to go beyond the “Tuscan wines = Chianti & Brunello” cliché.
The Nobile di Montepulciano private tour may be tailored to include a cheese tasting experience. Only if you start from Siena or its vicinity, it is possible to arrange a combined tour of the two neighboring wine regions of Montepulciano and Montalcino.
We have used the Tuscan Wine Tour by Italy and Wine tour company two times on our Italy vacations. Both of our tour days were perfect days. We learned so much history, had great food, and (of course) terrific wine! We recommend doing this private tour because it is a personalized day with an authentic person which makes it relaxed and just wonderful!
