Montepulciano

Montepulciano

The city of Montepulciano has a history tied to geographic location: intersection of two roads of regional importance (from Chiusi to Arezzo from south to north, from the Val d’Orcia and the Valdichiana and Trasimeno from east to west) and in part to its strategic location at boundary of the area of ​​influence of various late mediaeval potentates citizens (Orvieto, Perugia, Siena, Florence). The city has a special way: built along a ridge line from top to bottom, it currently has a long central course of about a mile, which, starting from Porta al Prato leads, with a height of 50-60 meters, Piazza Grande: the houses are organized around the course and a series of paths and narrow, often steep, more or less perpendicular to it. The most important buildings overlook almost any main street, forming a long line of facades, as an exhibition, drawing very high level. The wine growing area and the high esteem enjoyed by the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano were known at least since the eighth century AD At the beginning of the nineteenth Repetti in his “Geographical Dictionary of Tuscany, Historic Body” referred to an “instrument” dated October 17, 1350, with whom he established a mercantile company in Montepulciano wine, reflecting the fact that the “best wine “This area is also would send out” Long time ago “. And Sante Lancerio, wine of Pope Paul III Farnese, in his book of travels in search of the finest wines for the Pope, decreed in 1549 the Nobile “wine perfect, from the Lords”. But it was mainly a poet and physician Francesco Redi to make known, in the seventeenth century, Vino Nobile with its famous dithyramb “Bacco in Toscana”, in which ideally accompanies Bacchus and Ariadne in the examination of all the wines of Tuscany. The Redi forge here today saying that we all know and of which all are proud Poliziani: “Montepulciano of every wine is king.” The adjective Noble could be derived from the fact that the wine of superior quality in the past was the exclusive prerogative of the noble families of the area of ​​Montepulciano. The Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is one of the first Italian wines of high quality and ancient fame for recognition of the denomination of controlled origin (DOC) July 12, 1966, while Italy is the first wine ever to have recognized the name of controlled and guaranteed origin (DOCG), which selected him definitely among the best wines of our country. http://www.prolocomontepulciano.it/storia.php
