We visited Montepulciano this summer and had a lunch at Gattavecchi with a glass of wonderful Gattavecchi Vino Nobile di Montepulcian, Riserva 2009. We liked it so much that we decided to order 12 bottles to be shipped to our home in the UK. Maurizio gave us a “good deal” on the shipment. It arrived promptly, neatly packed in two... More

We had a wonderful tour and tasting followed by a good, but frenetic, wine tasting. Luckily, we were staying for lunch and that helped round things out. The wines were good to very good. The lunch experience was very good. The food was well prepared and the pace of lunch was appropriate. The ribolleta was amazing. I would recommend for... More

We were a group of 5 couples visiting Tuscany for a week and our first stop was Montepulciano. After exploring the city, we had a reservation for a tasting and were warmly welcomed and were seated at a scenic table out on their porch. Everyone at Gattavecchi was so friendly and the wine tastings were very generous. We tasted 3... More

We visited this winery with our family - 6 adults, 1 child. We took a tour of the wine cellar and had lunch. The tour, given by a family member of the winery was informative and interesting. Lunch was enjoyable. We only had a tasting menu, light fare, but the smells of the food and smiles on the faces of... More

What a nice place to stop to try the nobile, the Rosso is wonderful too!! Family run, the owner is very nice- he proudly and generously shares tastes of his wine. We bought several bottles for enjoyment during our stay and riserva to take home.

It took a few tries to find this place but once we did it was heaven. Gorgeous views, lots of great wines and our gracious host Maurizio let us hang out for a few hours on the deck over looking the valley. Would recommend to anyone visiting the charming town of Montepulciano.

My husband and I stopped by Gattavecchi on our walk through Montepulciano and we are SO glad we did! We walked into the small shop and were welcomed by Mauritzio, the owner's son. We asked about wine tasting and he showed us to the wine cellar (which is so cool!) to take a look around before tasting the wine. When... More

Great wines. We saw a lot, tasted some great wines and, ofcourse, bought the best they had. Enjoying it right now. Nice hostess, took the time for us.

Unfortunately we are unable to rate the wine or the food here as we didn't even receive the opportunity to try them. We walked inside and were shown the cellar by a lady which we viewed ourselves, but from then onwards we were ignored. Once we had viewed the cellar and returned to the common area we advised 2 separate... More

Winery located just outside the Montepulciano's historical city centre (something like a 2 minutes walking from there) in a lovely, quiet and fascinating spot. The winery is elegant, but not to the point of discouraging casual tourists. It's possible to visit the wine cave, which may be is not astonishing but still interesting to see. The wine tasting menus are... More
