Montepulciano | Grape variety
The Montepulciano grape is not to be confused with the town of the same name in Tuscany. This variety, in the form of Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, produces, on the one hand, inexpensive and simple drinking wines and, on the other hand, deep and characterful noble wines. The main area of cultivation is the Abruzzo region, where the eponymous Montepulciano d' Abruzzo - which must consist of at least 70% of the grape variety - is produced.
From the Montepulciano grapes arise down-to-earth to fine spicy wines that can be strong but also rich in alcohol. In addition, from the grapes also a well-known Rosato - the Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo is produced. In addition, the grape variety finds numerous uses in the most diverse Cuvees. - Gerardo
