Not to be confused with the Tuscan town, the Montepulciano variety flourishes here, producing fruit-forward, complex wines that are easy to drink. In addition to this DOCG, there are three key DOCs that include the red Montepulicano d’Abruzzo, the white Trebbiano d’Abruzzo, and Controguerra which produces Montepulciano based wines with some native and international grapes.
