It would seem to me that depends on what else you want to see. If you want to explore northern Tuscany, Cinque Terre, etc, then stay up near Lucca.

Staying further south, like Montalcino, would give you access to southern Tuscany and northern Umbria.

But if you are not going to have a car, you should base yourself somewhere with the best train and bus connections. I don't think Montalcino will qualify. I would consider somewhere like Orvieto.
