Pitigliano is a truly unique village in southern Tuscany, in the less-known Maremma district. The town is dubbed "la citta' di tufo" for the rock that it not only is built of, but rests on. Pitigliano is perched on a tufa bluff, making it a dramatic sight. The village is also called "Little Jerusalem", not just because it looks ancient and bears a resemblance (in miniature) that city, but more specifically for the long presence of a Jewish community in the town. There has been a "Hebrew quarter" for more than half a millennia, and there is still a synagogue, kosher shops and traditions intact. The Jewish district (quartiere ebraico) is the most characteristic and charming section of town. This fascinating town rests on top of a cliff and exudes a romantic and mysterious air. It unfolds along the ridge with narrow, almost-secret alleys and opens into little overlooks. Beneath are age-old wine cellars carved right into the rock on which Pitigliano is built, with a network of secret tunnels and intersecting chambers. The stuff of fantasy and epic films! In fact, nearly every house is provided with a cellar, which goes down, down, down into the cliff, with wooden barrels where the wine is preserved at a constantly cool temperature. The Bianco di Pitigliano is a crisp white that is gaining in popularity.
