Vivino's Regional Styles

Italian Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

The grape Montepulciano can be grown in most of Italy, but the biggest region for it is Abruzzo. The region produces wine in two main styles—one soft and approachable, the other rich and more tannic.

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is a good region for good value, but often the wines are not quite as great as they could be.

There is really only one fine wine in Abruzzo and it is Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. At its best, the grape Montepulciano can produce wines that are dry, rich, powerful, and dark in color. However, often the quality is a little low and it can be uninteresting.

This wine can be pretty similar to Chianti in style. This is not surprising given that it can have up to 15% Sangiovese in it. Blending with Sangiovese adds body and complexity with flavor ranging from fruity to Savory. ines.

There is often an aroma common to wines from Montepulciano d'Abruzzo that can be described as “animal”. It can be very seductive in small amounts, but can be pretty terrible if strong.
