Fine dining near Volterra?

I will be visiting Castello dei Rampolla at 3pm on a Monday afternoon in a few weeks, and am trying to sort out where to have dinner afterwards. I'm staying near Volterra.

Near Rampolla, I see that Malborghetto and Ristorio di Lamole are highly recommended. I'd book at one of these places, but I'm concerned that if we start dinner at 8pm (which seems to be the time local kitchens open), we'll be leaving at 10 or 10.30 and have 1.5 hours of drive ahead of us, back to Volterra.

So -- is there anything of a similar caliber near Volterra? Ideal attributes are: rustic/intimate, with great food, and (in a perfect world) with great views.

I have searched around here for Volterra restaurants, but I keep coming up with restaurants in Chianti.

Thanks for any thoughts.
