Montepulciano is a red Italian wine grape variety that is most noted for being the primary grape behind the Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) wine Offida Rosso, Montepulciano d Abruzzo Colline Teramane (as well its larger DOC outside of Colline Teramane), Rosso Conero and the Denominazione di origine controllata (DOC) wines Rosso Piceno Superiore.

It should not be confused with the similarly named Tuscan wine Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, which is made from predominantly Sangiovese and is named for the village it is produced in, rather than for containing any Montepulciano grapes in the blend. The grape is widely planted throughout central and southern Italy, most notably in Abruzzo, Latium, Marche, Molise, Umbria and Apulia, and is a permitted variety in DOC wines produced in 20 of Italy's 95 provinces.

Montepulciano is rarely found in northern Italy because the grape has a tendency to ripen late and can be excessively green if harvested too early. When fully ripened, Montepulciano can produce deeply colored wines, with moderate acidity and noticeable extract and alcohol levels.

Montepulciano Wine

Montepulciano wine comes from central Italy, but its popularity has grown globally. Today, it is one of the most widely exported red wines in Italy. The wine Montepulciano is made primarily with the grape of the same name, however, it isn’t uncommon to see blends.

This red wine is known for being gentle on the palette while being strong in color. Montepulciano has a deep red color, soft tannins and a full body that tastes of berries with hints of spice notes.

Montepulciano Abruzzo

Montepulciano Abruzzo is the name commonly given to Montepulciano wine from the eastern sub region of Abruzzo. This is arguably the most famous type of Montepulciano wine. It is an aromatic, deeply colored red wine with notes of spice and pepper. Montepulciano Abruzzo is best as a young wine and changes little with age, though it does remain fresh and full-bodied for some time.
