Montepulciano grapes are mainly grown in the Abruzzo region of Italy. The rich blue berries are used to make soft mono-varietal wines as well as blends. They can be red or rosé dry wines. Their bouquet consists of notes of fruit, flowers, oak wood, toast, blackberries, vanilla, rose and spices. Sweetness and acidity are well balanced, with touches of pleasant minerality and tannins. Serve wine from Montepulciano grape with beef patties, roast pork, lamb, herb-baked potatoes, salty Parmesan cheese. The combination with chocolate desserts will be a success.
