Dare il benvenuto a Montepulciano or Welcome to Montepulciano, a hill-top town in southern Tuscany mostly known for its wine, Montepulciano Vino Nobile, a smooth red wine similar to Cabernet. Very delicious.
Pictured here is the southern gate that's barely wide enough to accommodate the smallest of sub-compacts. If you plan to visit, find parking outside the city walls, it will be less hassle all around.
The world of Montepulciano waits just inside these gates. Want to see more, you'll need to visit here more often. I will take you on a tour inside and up to the city square.
