Barrel’s race

20/August/2015

On the last Sunday of August in Montepulciano takes place the famous barrell rolling race named “Bravio delle Botti”. This is an ancient tradition in which the city’s “Contrade” quarters compete rolling wine barrells along up the city roads.

The 8 “Contrade” San Donato, Cagnano, Gracciano, Talosa, Volataia, Poggiolo, Le Coste, Collazzi, compete for the prize that’s a painted banner. The barrells are empty of course but they are 80 kg and the race is 1,8 km uphill.

This is a really exciting race you can not miss.!!
