Region: Abruzzo, Italy Grape(s): Montepulciano Drinks Best: Now
Head due east out of the hubbub of Rome and you’ll quickly reach the heart of Abruzzo, a rural area that sports hilly terrain, plentiful sunshine and cooling coastal breezes coming off the Adriatic Sea. Here you’ll find perhaps the country’s most famous value red, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. Under the proper care that attentive winemakers such as the team at La Fiera offer, Montepulciano seems a custom-built match to the terroir of the region that brings out its approachably soft, mouth-filling flavors of dark berry fruit, spice and a pleasing rustic edge.
