We booked a tour of the wine cellars including a tasting in september 2020. During the tour of the breathtaking cellars our guide shared the great myth of the de Ricci family as well as the history of the palace and cellars with us. As we descended further into the cellars, we were taken further back in time, to end up at the origin of Tuscan civilization, 2500 years ago. The tasting was perfect, with 6 great wines, accompanying bites and very knowledgeable staff. Cannot wait to open the bottles that we took home with us.

The tour guide was very competent and the wine cellar in the middle of the city impressive. The wine we tasted was delicious and they filled our glasses very generously.

When approaching the town of Montepulciano, can see lots and lots of wine related proposals: tastings and visits. Is all about the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. We visited the other wine cellar (by the Big Square, Piazza Grande) it was OK but a little further we came across with this surprise. We entered through this building (Palazzo Ricci) unimaginable that through an “equestrian” staircase (wonder if in the old times they used horses to transport wine barrels up and down!) we would tour an underground world of tunnels, Etruscan caves, water wells, aisles and naves, an underground cathedral of wine!. Free entry, English spoken, tasting if interested, a must do when in Montepulciano.

While there are little wine shops every other door, none offered 200 year old architecture with old barrels the way it was done long ago. Wandering through cavernous spaces surrounded by wine barrels was truly special. Once into the tasting room, the two proprietors were friendly, knowledgable and even made us a reservation at a sold out resturaunt that required reservations. We bought some reserve and can’t wait for arrival.

Our tour at de Ricci was nothing short of amazing. The history of the place itself was just mind blowing. The wines were all terrific and the winemaker and his wife were both delightful as were the other staff. We loved everything we tasted and especially enjoyed the wine makes hommage to his father. The legend of the hedgehogs role in the making of great wine in the region is worth the trip! We bought several cases and will definitely be a repeat customer!
