Montepulciano, Good Friday lunch


image
We are in Tuscany for Easter, at an agriturismo near Montepulciano with friends. Just wonderful. It is raining today, but we had a glorious say yesterday with lunch in Montepulciano.Vino nobile
Montepulciano is famous for wine, especially the vino nobile di Montepulciano….Brunello
…and the Brunello di Montepulciano are also amazing.
Lunch
We had lunch here, at La bottega del Nobile.
Crostini
Crostini, with carciofi, tartufo, fegato, garlic and spicy tomato. Lovely.
Cantucci
We had gorgeous pasta: pici con ragu di cinghiale, pici con ragu di anatra, and ravioloni with pork. Then cantucci with vin santo, and a wonderful Sambuca to finish. After wine and Sambuca shopping, we wandered up the hill for coffee at Polizano.
Olive wood
It is touristy, but so pretty! And you can find olive wood cutlery…
Fridge magnets
… Tacky fridge magnets….
Masonry
Old masonry, set into a wall….
Yellow vespa
An Easter-yellow Vespa

Then we headed out to our agriturismo, among vineyards and cypresses. Wonderful day!
