Description

De Luca, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Castello di Septe

A nice light red wine. Raspberry predominates, but not too sweet. Light body, short finish. Paired well with homemade Sicilian-style pizza.

Montepulciano is the second most planted red variety in Italy after Sangiovese, though it is achieving its highest potential in the region of Abruzzo. Consistently enticing and enjoyable, Montepulciano enjoys great popularity throughout central and southern Italy as well. A tiny bit grows with success in California, Argentina, and Australia. A Somm Secret—Montepulciano is also the name of a village in Tuscany where, confusingly, they don’t grow the Montepulciano grape at all! Sangiovese shines in yet another Tuscan village, here making the reputable wine called Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.

Vineyard

De Luca, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Castello di Septe

A warm, Mediterranean vine-growing paradise, in Abruzzo, the distance from mountains to the seaside is relatively short. The Apennines, which run through the center of Italy, rise up on its western side while the Adriatic Sea defines its eastern border.

Wine composition tends to two varieties: Abruzzo’s red grape, Montepulciano, and its white, Trebbiano. Montepulciano d’Abruzzo can come in a quaffable, rustic and fruity style that generally drinks best young. It is also capable of making a more serious style, where oak aging tames its purely wild fruit.

Trebbiano in Abruzzo also comes in a couple of varieties. Trebbiano Toscana makes a simple and fruity white. However, when meticulously tended, the specific Trebbiano d’Abruzzo-based white wines can be complex and long-lived.

In the region’s efforts to focus on better sites and lower yields, vine acreage has decreased in recent years while quality has increased.
