Story of the Wine:
There is always an initial confusion between the
Montepulciano the grape and Montepulciano the Tuscan town. This is the grape. Although it has given its name to the major DOC for the region of Abruzzo the Montepulciano grape is cultivated extensively throughout the southern half of Italy and features in many blends. Montepulciano is a late maturing grape and prefers the warmth and sun of the south. The Montepulciano is one of Italy's varieties that is seldom found outside central Italy and yet can always be relied upon to make a wine of flavour and character. A delicious fruity nose with a touch of leafiness. On the palate it has herbal tones, is nicely balanced and has a good length and medium weight.
Grape(s): 100% Montepulciano
