Many of the hill towns of Tuscany are famous for their clustered houses, cobbled streets and lovely views. To an outsider, they often seem interchangeable – unless one of them is particularly noted for a wine grape that’s arguably even more well known than the town from which it comes. Such is the case with Montepulciano. The town and the wine grape share the name, and any visitors drawn to the area for one of the two is likely to be equally charmed by the other.
