The history of Montepulciano has always been entwined with the fame of its vineyards and wines. Archaeological finds give evidence that wine has been produced and drunk since Etruscan times; in particular the discovery of a tall stemmed, low bowled wine cup or kylix decorated with red figures representing Baccus the Etruscan god of wine. So the history of Montepulciano's wines proves long and continuing.
In the mid 16th century Sante Lancerio, private cellar master of Pope Paolo III (Farnese), praised the wines of these hills as follows, 'perfect either in winter or summer, with a full aroma and neither aggressive nor too deeply coloured they are truly wines for gentlemen' Today, also due to government and EEC contribution, history continues to be made with the introduction in 1966 and 1990 of the D.O.C. and the D.O.C.G. seals of quality.

The estate's name "La Ciarliana" is given by the small and suggestive chapel nearby and the logo of the vineyard is inspired by the original belltower. The terrain, the loving care given to the vines and the careful selection of the bunches of grapes all combine to give "La Ciarliana" wines remarkable structure and body. The recently contructed winecellar has two floors. An underground cellar for vinification, wine maturing and ageing in bottles and the ground floor dedicated to hosting those who wish to taste and acquire the wines produced by "La Ciarliana". The winery is in fact always open to the public and by appointment can receive groups of up to 40 people.
