- Heading due east from Rome lays the region of Abruzzo. The hillsides are excellent for viticulture. The most popular red grape is the Montepulciano although many other grapes are grown here most notably Sangiovese. As an aside, there is no relation between the grape and the village of the same name in Tuscany, which is famous for its wine, Vin Nobile di Montepulciano (made from Sangiovese grapes.). The Trebbiano grape is the most well known of the white varietals. Montepulciano dAbruzzo was designated as a DOC in 1968.
The Montepulciano grape is used by the winemaker to make this red wine. The fruit is sourced exclusively from Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, part of the Abruzzi region of Italy. The grape has a deep purple and ruby colour to its juice. It has lower acidity (especially for an Italian varietal) and mild sweeter tannins. The resulting wines tend to be softer and more accessible than Chianti or Nebbiolo for example. Accordingly, the young wines are nice pleasurable reds that go as well with food as without it. Montepulciano dAbruzzo can age brilliantly especially in the hands of the right producers.
