Montepulciano is known for its wines, so a visit and tasting is in order. The Antica Cantina di Montepulciano is a good choice; it's a cooperative of growers and vintners that has been around since 1937, the oldest cooperative in Tuscany. In fact, it covers two regions and three provinces to produce four distinct labels of wines, with the emphasis on quality products at reasonable prices. You can sample the range from Rosso Montepulciano to Chianti to Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Brunello. Schedule a visit and tasting online from their packages, or stop in to buy bottles directly from the winery.
