As the name suggests, it is a spa town with lots of good spring water and it also produces good wine. In 1977 the town changed its name so it was obvious that it was a spa town and not just the usual agricultural town. Fortunately the town has not undergone the usual industrialization as have other Tuscan towns, and has thus not become overrun with hotels and tourists.
