Montepulciano Vine

It is one of the most important grapes in central Italy, the importance of which is shared equally with Sangiovese to which it is historically closely linked, and with which it is often confused. The origin of Montepulciano is probably in the so-called conca Peligna in Abruzzo, from where it expanded rapidly into every corner of the region, but it was only with the law of 1968 that it was stated that this was the cradle of its origin. The confusion of this grape with the Sangiovese originates in the first writings of ampelography of the 1500s. Subsequently, as this Tuscan vine increasingly spread across the other regions of Italy, things got worse until everything was called Montepulciano. It took extensive and innumerable written research studies until the vine that took the name of Montepulciano Cordisco was clearly described in the early 1900s. In conclusion, we can say that today these two grapes, most of all, represent central Italy—the emblem of their territorial origin. We should not forget that this wine’s success is closely linked to the fact that it tolerates intensive cultivation, short pruning and dense planting extremely well, without this leading to any loss in quality or in its great fecundity.

Montepulciano Wine
The commitment of the best contemporary producers was not to betray the “rustic accents” in order to create excellent wines, with expressive capacity given the power, structure, elegance and wide olfactory nuances. Intense ruby red colour with violet shades tending to orange when aged, intense nose, soft and pleasant, fruity with hints of cherry and black cherry; on the palate, it is dry, soft, slightly tannic, and sapid.
