Abruzzo is located in Central Italy. This mountainous region bordering the Adriatic has a rich history of viticulture and is now the 5th most productive wine region in the country.
It’s the kingdom of one main local native red grape: Montepulciano; it gives dark, spicy and tannic nectars which are easy-to-drink and to pair with food and excellent for ageing. It can also be used for rosé wine like the deep cherry pink Cerasuolo. While reds may dominate, there’s also an important place for dry white wines, mainly made from a local Trebbiano grape version.
