Grape Montepulciano is a red wine grape variety grown widely in central Italy, most notably its eastern Abruzzo, Marche and Molise regions. The variety was named after the Tuscan parish of Montepulciano. Globally appreciated for their soft flavors, strong color and gentle tannins, Montepulciano wines are typically best consumed in their youth and with food. The deep purple juice of Montepulciano grapes is used in varying proportions to produce wines under roughly 50 of Italy’s DOC and DOCG titles.
Region Abruzzo is an Italian wine region on the east (Adriatic) coast. Its immediate neighbors in central Italy are Marche to the north, Lazio to the west and southwest and Molise to the southeast. Abruzzo is home to one DOCG – Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Colline Teramane – and three DOC wine designations. The red and Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo and  Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, and the white wine appellation Trebbiano d’Abruzzo are the most notable, followed by the lesser-known Controguerra.
