The Montepulciano grapes ripen late and need lots of sun. Single-origin wines pressed from them are generally deep in colour, very juicy and with subtle acidity. Montepulciano can be seen as the little brother of Chianti.
MONTEPULCIANO D’ABRUZZO DOC is a fruity, subtle wine. Its aroma profile is characterised by slightly sharp tannins that are well incorporated. Its well-structured character is also seen in its nose, with ripe berries, blackberries and elderberries, as well as notes of plums and black cherries.
MONTEPULCIANO D’ABRUZZO DOC reveals its character with pizza and pasta dishes, antipasti vegetables and Mediterranean meat dishes. It goes particularly well with the roast aromas of grilled meat.
The Montepulciano is cultivated in Abruzzo, between the sandy beaches of the Adriatic and the Apennine mountains on just over 33,000 hectares of wine land. Many of the vineyards are at an altitude of up to 600 metres at the foot of the mountain range and benefit from a balanced climate. That very spot is where the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo wines originate.
