Montepulciano is not always Montepulciano

Don’t get caught in that debate. Allow me to explain.

Both from Italy are the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and the Montepulciano D’Abruzzo.

The Vino Nobile di Montepulciano originates from the province of Tuscany and is produced in the vineyards surrounding the town Montepulciano. Predominantly produced of the Sangiovese grape resulting in a wine with naturally elevated acidity and robust herbal, tobacco-like flavors.

Our Montepulciano however originates from the province of Abruzzo, in central Italy. This wine is made of grapes named Montepulciano. These grapes produce medium bodied wines, deeply colored, rich aromatic and with soft tannins. Its profile lends itself for the wine to be consumed young. The wine is not so well known and therefore undervalued. That is the reason I take this opportunity to bring this Montepulciano under your attention at 10% off the kit price.
