Drammatico tramonto su antica fattoria toscana lungo la Val d'Orcia
"Dramatic sunset over an ancient Tuscan farm along the Val d'Orcia"...
A late afternoon excursion from Cortona led me to the medieval town of Montepulciano, which stands on an ancient walled hilltop in southern Tuscany, not far from Siena. Within its ramparts are elegant Renaissance palaces, ancient churches, charming squares, hidden corners, and vast panoramas of the famous vineyard valleys of the Val d'Orcia. Montepulciano has received great attention following the filming of the sequel Twilight - New Moon. I would love to spend more time in the picturesque town, and will include a longer stay in my return to Italy. Montepulciano is famous for not just one but two excellent wines, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Rosso di Montepulciano. However, it is often underestimated in terms of the interest of its art and architecture, perhaps because of its small size. One of the many promises I made to myself upon my return home was to drink a glass of my favorite Italian wine nightly, and without doubt...Montepulciano is my favorite wine region. This image was made of the dramatic sunset along the Val d’Orcia on the ride back to Cortona. Unfortunately, this image is one of very few from this famous scenic Tuscan countryside, but I pray and aspire for many more.
