The hill top village is pretty. No doubting that. The views from the high points are stunning. The churches and the village are steeped in history. However, it won't take long to walk to the top of the village via VERY steep stoney 'roads' and pathways. Cute doorways and archways. That's it I'm afraid. There are two bars/cafes. An hour visit maybe? There is a sweet chestnut festival in October which is described by honest locals as 'cute' and of 'medium interest'. The local campsite and campsite restaurant offer good service. Here's what good old Wikipedia has to say:
Monticello Amiata is a village in Tuscany, central Italy, administratively a frazione of the comune of Cinigiano, province of Grosseto. At the time of the 2001 census its population amounted to 425.

Monticello Amiata is a tiny medieval town only 20 km away from super "touristy" Montalcino. It's nice to have a coffee with the locals, smile back to the curious faces. There are 2 cafes on the main road, one mini-market and a nice restaurant at the camping site. The historical downtown is worth a stop on the way to Arcidosso or Castel Del Piano.

This was really cool to drive into. The fortress really reminds you of the history of the area. We attended a wine tasting at the winery inside the fortress. There is a restaurant near the parking lot with a balcony, go there. Also, there were a couple places that had outside musicians and allowed us to sit down and enjoy or dance along. This was a really beautiful city.
