Montepulciano is one of Tuscany's highest hilltop towns, and is rich in Renaissance era is widely known for the Vino Nobile produced here...delicious wine that, over three days, I sampled repeatedly (in order to confirm it's quality of course)...the church below the town is Madonna di San Biagio, dating from the 16th century
