Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

D.O.C. Abruzzo

When visiting the Abruzzo region of central Italy be prepared to fall in love quickly and repeatedly. Stretching from the Adriatic to the Apennines, it’s a wild place, with beautiful vast mountain views across lush valleys and orange tiled villages that nestle into the soaring hills like mountain fortresses. This region is famous for wine production and the Montepulciano grape varietal has been flourishing in the Abruzzo region since the 18th century.

Harvest and vinifications notes

Smooth and elegant red wine made from Montepulciano grapes grown in the Abruzzo region in central Italy. The rugged, hilly terrain of the Apennine Mountains provides the firm character for this excellent wine.

Tasting notes
