Montepulciano is both a grape variety and the name of a village. Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is the wine produced from the Montepulciano grape when grown in the Abruzzo region
Montepulciano, the grape, is widely grown in Italy, primarily cultivated on the eastern side of the Italian peninsula, and also in the more central and southern regions of Italy. The primary regions that grow Montepulciano include Abruzzo, Marche, Umbria, Molise, Latium (around Rome), Emilia-Romagna (north of Tuscany and Abruzzo) and Apulia (the heel of the “Italian boot”). There is also some Montepulciano grown in the Tuscany region, home of Chianti, but the grape is not used in producing Chianti wines. Some of the more famous wines made from Montepulciano fall under the following DOC and DOCG appellations: Montepulciano d’Abruzzo in Abruzzo; Offida Rosso, Rosso Conero and Rosso Piceno in Marche.
The Montepulciano grape can produce well-colored red wines that maintain good acidity when fully ripened, even in hotter climates.
