Tuscan postcards … 1. Montepulciano

Montepulciano is a medieval hilltop town in the province of Siena. It is surrounded by vineyards and is known for its vino nobile red wine. The main square, the Piazza Grande, is surrounded by the fourteenth-century Palazzo Comunale and the Duomo, which is normally home to an impressive triptych altarpiece, the ‘Assumption of the Virgin’, painted by Taddeo di Bartolo in 1401; however, unfortunately it had been removed for renovation.
