Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Name of varietal: Montepulciano d’Abruzzo (see: Montepulciano)

History of the grape: Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is a red wine made from the Montepulciano grape in the town of Abruzzo, Italy. It is often confused with the grape, but when “Abruzzo” is part of the name, this is only a reference to the wine made from the grape and its region, and is not the name of the grape itself. For more information on the grape, see Montepulciano.

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo on Snooth

  • My fave weekday wines are Estancia Monterey Chardonnay.  It's unique among Chards.  Not only is it tasty, but it has the body of a classic Calif. Chard balanced by a wonderful minerality and good apple/tropical fruit.  Not to mention at $10 it's a steal.Favorite red is Cantina Zaccagnini Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, $12.  Well-balanced, lovely dark ...

  • Italian Roses, that's what’s for dinner. And before you go there let me just say yes these are all from the importer Winebow. They sent me a selection of Italian roses, and no one else did so I'm tasting them together and reporting on them as a package. Good on Winebow you might say.I received great fact sheets with each of these wines, which co... Read More

  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...

  • Barone di Valforte Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A simple and straight forward wine. Closed nose that seemed to open up and be more aromatic the second day (wine was pumped). Blackberry notes, fresh earth/brambles, and lots of acid. Tannin came across as slightly edgy. Somewhat bitter on the finish. Read More

  • Villa Cerrina Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2012

    Snoothrank:

    My first Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, was purchased at Trader Joe's. Slightly transparent in the glass and deep ruby in color. Red fruit on the nose. Lots of red fruit in the mouth with lots of acidity and has no sign of tannins. Not complex but easy to drink and enjoy. General thoughts; kissing cousin to Barbera and Beaujolais. Read More

  • My rec is to forget it. The people making the wine licensed the name. The wine was never better than OK. Twelve bottles for $200 is less than $20 a bottle, but I think you can get much better wine at the $15 - $20 range. Buy something like Marques de Riscal Reserva or even a good Cotes du Rhone or Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. Read More

  • Marilyn Merlot is hardly something I'm interested in (although I love merlot).  I saw someone in Victoria has a collection of 12 bottles they were selling on Craigslist for $200 (including the metal rack).  Only a few of the bottles were empty.  Obviously, it is questionable that they were stored properly and I'd bet not.  But I was wondering if...
