Tuscany & Rome

I will be going to Italy 6/28-7/7 and staying in the Maremma section of Tuscany. So far I have lined up visits to Banfi, de Ricci, Tenuta di Ornellaia and Brancaia wineries. I will have a free day in Tuscany as well and was thinking about visiting Orvieto and touring all of the underground caves. The last 3 days of my trip will be in Rome. I have a tour booked to view all of the tourist sites including the Vatican.

I am looking for non touristy places to eat (I love eating like the locals and doing what they do) in these areas including places that serve homemade pasta, great gelato and pastry shops. Possibly some other nice wineries worth visiting and other towns other than Orvieto that are located in Tuscany.

I visit Sicily every summer and I enjoy eating at agriturismos. Are there any great ones in Tuscany?
