“Better Wine Options”
Review of Cantina de' Ricci

The tour was okay, as was the tasting after. The wine was good, but not "knock your socks off" good and not worth the price. There are better options in Montepulciano to taste wine.

While in this beautiful town we stopped at this beautiful wine cellar and observed and walk through the seller with these massive barrels which actually are still being used. The walk-through was very beautiful and at the end of it there was a place to do some winetasting. We picked up some excellent bottles for €10. It's a very quick tour and no cost involved I would highly recommend for families and even with small children.

We ran into a local in Montepulciano who showed us an apartment he had for rent should we ever return there. After we toured his apartment he told us to follow him and we did to De'Ricci just a short distance from his apartment. He walked inside and then he just started going down step after step after step after step all the way down to the beautiful Etruscan cave at the bottom. He left shortly thereafter and we walked into the wine tasting room. We asked if we could go all the way back up and come down again so that we could get some pictures of this very historic Winery and that's exactly what we did. We came back down and then enjoyed a great wine tasting. We loved the wine and we loved the tour. An absolute must-see in Montepulciano.

We toured the wine cellar and tasting room on recommendations from TripAdvisor and Rick Steve's book and were glad we did. Had a very lively and informative tasting, and ended up shipping six bottles home. Our host gave us an extra bottle for free to enjoy during our stay - nice and unexpected!

We had read about this wine cellar but had difficulties finding the entrance, as we had seen different addresses and different names, “de’ Ricci” and “del Redi”. After looking around for a while we found an entrance on Via di Collazzi, but the sign by the door saying “De’Ricci” was very small and the door looked like it was locked with a metal gate so at first we didn’t realize it was the entrance. The letters high up on the wall said “Cantina del Redi”. We entered the tasting room, asked about the wine cellar and the staff opened the door so we could enter the wine cellar and walk around on our own. It was interesting to see the different storage areas with very large wine barrels. It felt like a large cave with its stone walls, high ceiling and aisles almost like a labyrinth. We walked up the stairs and found that it was possible to go out on a roof top terrace where we heard music playing (and realized it was the music academy in the same building). We also found the entrance/exit to the street, Via Ricci, on the other side of the building (the entrance that we didn’t find earlier). Back in the tasting room we asked about wine tasting and were offered to sample 4 different wines, which cost €3 per person if you didn’t buy anything. The staff weren’t as informative as in other places where we sampled wine, so for wine tasting I would recommend other places, but the wine cellar here was well worth visiting.
