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

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

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
