Additional Information on Il Conte Montepulciano D'abruzzo 2013

Winery: Il Conte

Varietal: Montepulciano

Montepulciano grapes are one of the most widely cultivated varietals in Italy, with vines growing in twenty of Italy's ninety five provinces. This varietal is renowned for producing high yields, making it popular with vintners looking for a relatively easy varietal to grow. Whilst the grapes tend to have a low skin to juice ratio, the skins themselves are remarkably high in tannins with a lot of pigmentation, which means they often produce rather well bodied wines with a beautiful deep, dark color The wines of Montepulciano grapes are most commonly associated with soft, rounded characteristics, with plenty of juicy, plummy flavors The wines are known for being very smooth and drinkable, and easy to match with a wide range of foods.

Region: Abruzzo

There are few wine regions in the world quite as ancient or interesting as that of Abruzzo, a region of central Italy which has been producing wines for almost three thousand years. Indeed, wines were being made and enjoyed there in pre-Roman times, and several historical records mention the quality of Abruzzo wines, and many of the famous individuals who drank them in ancient times. Today, the region is doing very well indeed, now fully recovered from the drop in reputation it suffered in the mid twentieth century. Abruzzo wines are primarily made with the excellent Montepulciano and Trebbiano varietal grapes which flourish there, and are notable for their big, bold and fruit-forward flavors, which have proven to be popular with modern palates, and match well with a range of cuisines.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
