Sant’Angelo in Colle, hamlet of Montalcino, Tuscany


   
   

Sant'Angelo in Colle is a typical medieval village situated 8 km from Montalcino. The village is perched on a low hill (450m) within the Natural Park of Val D’Orcia, in the southwestern subzone of the Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino appellation.
From here you can admire the view of Monte Amiata. The view from the square on the Val d'Orcia and Castello Banfi vineyards, is extremely beautiful, especially around sunset.

On reaching the top of the hill where the village of S.Angelo is perched, it is difficult not to pause and survey the surrounding countryside. It is incredibly beautiful and this view cannot have changed much since 20 June 715. On that date Sancto Angelo Abollenis was the site of a meeting of two bishops who were debating the exact boundary between the diocese of Siena and Arezzo. The meeting was organised by request of King Liutprando in order to settle an ongoing dispute.
No doubt this beautiful hamlet, that nowadays overlooks farmhouses and vineyards in Montalcino territory, in those days was simply a church built by some hermits at the top of the hill in the shade of the oaks that used to grow there. Just a few centuries later, around 1200, Sant’Angelo in Colle was more or less its current size. Various sources mention S.Angelo during the XIII° century, recounting, amongst other things, the construction of the “cassero” – the imposing watchtower that still stands and welcomes visitors who have climbed the hill to explore the village.

Park in the car park at the bottom of the hill, and walk along the Via del Sole all the way to the Piazza Castello. There can be spaces up the hill, but you shouldn’t miss the views along the Via del Sole. Il Leccio and Trattoria Il Pozzo are both very good restaurants. They have a good selection of wine and a quaint atmosphere.
