Our Rating – ★★★★
Aroma – Dark fruit, light spice
Grape – Montepulciano
Taste – Soft, easy drinking
Just to confuse wine drinkers, Montepulciano is both a grape variety and a wine made from Sagiovese. Here it’s the grape variety that’s important. Most Montepulciano d’Abruzzos are pale, light red wines of little character. but this is a completely different style. Here is a medium-bodied wine, bursting with dark berried fruits, little tannin and a decent finish. Soft and dangerously easy to drink. ‘Twiggy’ is one of the best Italian wines on our list!
