I live in Italy since 12 years and I have never seen it snow in Montepulciano.

This morning everything changed with lots of snow. As soon as I saw the countryside I rushed to get dressed to go outside for a walk in Montepulciano. There was nobody on the street. The temperature at this moment is below freezing.

I walked in the heart of the historic centre to the main square of Montepulciano: Piazza Grande.

Here’s a video from this morning’s walk.

Snow is rare and when it does fall, it usually smelts quickly. Of course by the time you read this the snow will have turned into rain and Montepulciano will be a slippery mess.

I am keeping this post short because I am preparing a virtual tour and tasting this afternoon. So enjoy these pictures from Montepulciano. Stay warm and healthy!
