Michelangelo’s self portrait in Siena

A post today from Mazzoni winemaker Alessandro Bindocci:

The land where we make wine is in the province of Siena. It takes about 40 minutes from my house in Sant’Angelo in Colle, depending on how fast you drive, to get to the historical centre of Siena.

Siena is one of the most beautiful medieval cities in Italy and it is also home to the Enoteca Nazionale, which is a wine store and education studio where you can learn about and taste wines from all the regions of Italy.

There are many amazing works of art and things to see in Siena.

In 2009 the Duomo of Siena unveiled four restored statues by Michelangelo Buonarotti, including his depiction of San Paolo (St. Paul) which is considered the Renaissance master’s earliest self-portrait.

This is just one of the many amazing things to visit this summer if you are coming to the Montalcino and Sant’Angelo in Colle wine country.
