Having visited Montepulciano for the wine, by the time we reached Ercolani we had already sampled several other cantina's for which we were glad as this wine spoiled us for most others! Greeted at the door we were quickly ushered onto an English tour of the wine cellars and Etruscan tombs underneath the shop front and told all about the process of the different wines. After this we were able to sample a vast array of red wines and a delicious vinsanto dessert wine accompanied by crostini, truffle, pecorino cheese, and salami all of which highlighted the depths and flavours of the wine (all free of charge!). Bernadette (?) was very informative and happy to answer our questions and help us decide which wine to purchase, allowing us further tastings to aid this decision. The shop was filled with goodies to taste including grappa, cheese and biscotti and out of the wineries we visited definitely my favourite. I can't wait for the wine we ordered to arrive!
