Vineyard in Abruzzo, Italy

Vineyard in Abruzzo, Italy

Abruzzo is a productive but often underrated wine region. It is located in Central Italy along the Adriatic sea west of Lazio with Umbria and the Marches on its northern border. More than three million hectoliters of wine are produced here annually and more than half of that is red.

Montepulciano, a versatile and potentially great red varietal, is king here featuring in several of the region’s DOCs and its singular DOCG appellation. Trebbiano is Abruzzo’s chief white wine varietal while Passerina and Pecorino are surging in popularity and critical interest.
