About Montepulciano d’Abruzzo: The region is one of Italy’s most mountainous with more than 65% of all Abruzzo being considered mountainous terrain with the Apennines peaks reaching up to 9000 feet above sea level. The hillside vineyards planted on calcareous clay benefit from warm and significant sun exposure that is ventilated by dry breezes coming off the Adriatic.  Montepulciano d’Abruzzo can be highly aromatic with earthy notes and blackberries and have inky-purple color with a thick, viscous mouthfeel.
