At lunch the owner was talking about a farm just outside Montepulciano that sells its produce direct. So rather than buy in the tourist shops, off I went in search. Montepulciano is a slightly larger hillside town than Pienza and once again breathtaking when you first see it in the distance
I had a wander and then off in search of the farm. Success! A lovely lady helped me choose after tasting 10 day old, 3 month and 6 month and vintage (years!) varieties. Purchases made I was off.
Monticchiello is a small town tucked away. Ever adventurous I took the via Blanca- the white road- mostly dust and scree with an added element of danger – well the car is already scratched so whatever!
Worth a visit. Sleepy yes but probably unbearable in high season. A medieval charm
Hot and tired, back to the farm for a swim and chill.
Last day tomorrow. What will I squeeze in?
