MORE INFORMATION

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is one of the great Italian wines known throughout the world. The winegrowers of Abbruzzo work in a certain way by preserving the richness of a winegrowing heritage from this very ancient grape variety.

The appellation (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) dates back to 1968 and includes the provinces of Pescara, Teramo, Chieti and L'Aquila. It produces exclusively red wine and can benefit from local indications to specify the origin of the vineyard and its own production criteria.

While Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is produced in large quantities, the quality of the wine is also very high! They are appreciated according to the terroirs for their full and robust character and their relatively good ageing potential.
