Montepulciano


 

Montepulciano is a red Italian wine grape variety that is most noted for being the primary grape behind the DOCG wine Offida Rosso, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Rosso Conero and the DOC wines Rosso Piceno Superiore.


The grape is widely planted throughout central and southern Italy, most notably in Abruzzo, Marche, Umbria and Puglia, and is a permitted variety in DOC wines produced in 20 of Italy's 95 provinces. Montepulciano is rarely found in northern Italy because the grape has a tendency to ripen late and can be excessively 'green' if harvested too early.


When fully ripened, Montepulciano can produce deeply coloured wines, with moderate acidity and noticeable extract and alcohol levels.
