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.
