Road to Montalcino.
On a Winter weekend morning we decided to drive to Montalcino to explore the city and see what was going on…We made the journey via Trequanda, Montisi and San Giovanni d’Asso, hill towns of the Orcia Chiana Ridge. The road is a joy to drive, winding past the towns with views out to either valley depending upon location. Even in the Winter the landscapes in Tuscany are beautiful, with a very different flavour from the Summer landscape. Journey time for the drive to Montalcino from Siena House with no stops would be 40-50 minutes. As always around these parts – not stopping is not easy!
