Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is a medium-bodied, dry red wine from the Abruzzo region of Italy (not to be confused with Vino Nobile di Montepulciano). This wine is notable for its intense flavors of dried herbs like oregano and a medley of fresh black fruits. The high tannins make this wine a perfect pairing for savory foods and tomato-based pasta.
