Yesterday hundreds of cyclists descended on Montepulciano, participants in the Italian edition of the Gran Fondo New York Italy homeland edition, which will be repeated in the coming years over the same route. About a thousand enthusiastic – more or less athletic – cyclists ready to tackle a course of about 100 km with height difference of over 2000 mts
Until now Montepulciano has been famous for the production of one of Italy’s finest wines, the Nobile di Montepulciano, the beauty of the countryside and the excellence of its cuisine.  These days it proffers also as a  ideal location for bicycle tourism and cycle races.  The fervour for the imperishable bicycle is increasing yearly, along with the appreciation for the beauty of our landscape.
