Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva
The "Villa Gemma" Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva
The Abruzzo vines, both black and white, are for the most
part indigenous. The most famous is Montepulciano, widespread
throughout the region. Montonico is also a native vine and is
grown on the slopes of the Gran Sasso, where the day-night
temperature range is considerable, especially in summer.
Passerina initially cultivated in the Teramo area, in the
municipalities of Controguerra and neighboring, up to beyond
Giulianova, is now present throughout the region. Trebbiano
d'Abruzzo is known for its great acidity and is usually used
as a cut to give freshness to the grapes. Cococciola is a
white grape variety with large grapes from the province of
Chieti, grown in particular in the municipalities of Vacri
and Villamagna. Pecorino is typical of the Piceno-Aprutina
ridge, although its origin seems to be that of the mountain
municipalities such as Visso, Arquata del Tronto and
neighboring ones. Sangiovese is also inevitable in Abruzzo,
as in all the queens of central Italy.
The "Villa Gemma" Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva, is made by
one of the most important names in the Abruzzo wine scene.
