More Information

Not to be confused with Vino Nobile di Montepulciano which is not made from this variety, Montepulciano takes over from Sangiovese as the predominant black grape variety moving down into southern Tuscany and beyond. A late ripener, it is not grown further north but thrives in the warm climate of the Abruzzi, the Marche and further south. In the past, its deep colour and plummy, chocolate and dark cherry character made it ideal as a blending wine for naturally lighter coloured varieties such as Sangiovese, but now it is more frequently produced as a single varietal.
