Winery Barone Cornacchia

Varietal: Montepulciano

Montepulciano grapes have been grown in Italy for at least two thousand years, and recent decades have seen vintners in several New World countries experimenting with this particular varietal. Its popularity stems from the fact that it produces high and reliable yields, meaning it is a great grape to grow for those wishing to produce lots of wine at a consistent quality. Indeed, the Montepulciano grape in grown almost all over Italy, as this hardy varietal can thrive in many different climatic conditions. The grapes themselves are renowned for producing wines which are relatively light in body, as the low acidity in the grapes mean that wines made from them are very smooth, soft and drinkable. They usually hold warm, ripe flavors of plum and other autumn fruits, and are often very dark in color

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
