Competitors push wine casks Sunday during the "Bravio delle Botti" race in Montepulciano, Italy. In this small town in Tuscany renowned for its wine, teams of two engage yearly in the historical "Bravio delle Botti," a challenge between the eight districts of Montepulciano when barrels are rolled by "spingitori" (men who push them) across the narrow and uphill streets of the city center.
