August is upon us! For some, holidays are about to begin... others have not yet decided where to go...

 

To those who are still looking for ideas and wish to stay a few days in Pagnana, but also to all of our guests arriving in the following days, we recommend a nice day trip to Montepulciano.

 

From Pagnana it takes an hour and a half, take the motorway towards Rome and exit at Valdichiana-Bettole continue on the SP327 towards Montepulciano (Via Michelin)

 

Now... why we recommend you visit Montepulciano?  

First of all because We went there yesterday... and made many interesting discoveries:

 

From August 14th to 17th in the churchyard of the cathedral in Piazza Grande, will take place the 75th edition of Bruscello Montepulciano: an archaic form of popular theatre, played and sung by non-professional actors and 100 extras from 6 to 70 years old who will represent "Romeo and Juliet", supported by an orchestra of 20 elements.

 

As every last Sunday of August, on the 31st you can assist at the Bravio of the barrels, the original challenge between the eight districts of Montepulciano, rolling barrels weighing 80 kg along a path uphill of about 1800 meters. The barrels are rolled by two athletes called "pushers" and the route of the race winds through the picturesque streets of the old town until they arrive in the square of the Cathedral.

 

Last, but not least, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Rosso di Montepulciano.

This is not a great discovery you'll say... who does not know them?

But do you know how to recognize, understand and appreciate them?

 

So perhaps it is the case that also you have a chat with Angela Saltafuori. Sommelier but also credited Guide to Wine Tuscan Tours, and while revealing the wines, she’ll take you on a tour to discover the main attractions and the most characteristic alleys of Montepulciano.
