Scenic Route between Montepulciano & San Gimignano

We will be driving between Montepulciano and San Gimignano in May. We have visited this part of Tuscany a number of times and were hoping that someone would have suggestions for some hidden little hilltowns to visit enroute, that we may have missed previously. Suggestions for somewhere to stop for lunch?

Thanks Everyone

1. Re: Scenic Route between Montepulciano & San Gimignano

Lots of options I can think of on the first stretch but some are barely out of Montepulciano. Montefollonico (la Chiusi), Petroio (Palazzo Brandano), Castelmuzio, Montisi (Da Roberto's), San Giovanni d'Asso (Il Castello), Asciano (Locanda del Ponte del Garbo). After here either head on to the Bettolle/Siena expressway and up in to the Chianti or head over to Chiusure (a tiny locanda, there's only one), Monte Oliveto Maggiore (the ristorante just above the abbey), Buonconvento (Da Mario's) and on in to Siena and beyond.
