We toured the wine cellar and tasting room on recommendations from TripAdvisor and Rick Steve's book and were glad we did. Had a very lively and informative tasting, and ended up shipping six bottles home. Our host gave us an extra bottle for free to...More

The history of this winery is incredible! We had a lovely private tour and tasting and were accomodated on a busy day of groups. The wine is great and made even more special by the overall wonderful experience! A must see in Montepulciano!

I've said it in other reviews, but I'll mention again how cool it is that several of the wineries in Montepulciano allow the public free access to their aging caves. It's an incredible look at history and beauty that is only available on costly private...More

Cantina de' Ricci, in the heart of Montepulciano, is a 15th century wine cellar still in use today. The walk down the stairs and through the cellar filled with casks is fun and free. At the end of the walk is a wine tasting bar...More
