Italian red grape
Montepulciano is the name of a red grape that is planted in central Italy. It is grown in Tuscany, but it is most widely known for its use in Abruzzi. Here it is used to create Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, which is an inexpensive but tasty red wine.
Montepulciano is best served around 60F and goes well with red sauce dishes.
