Produced for centuries on the terraced hillsides of southern Tuscany, Montepulciano is one of the best regarded red wines in the world. Designed to be served only to the Tuscan nobility, Montepulciano wine is now available to connoisseurs across the world, who can appreciate its vibrant fruitiness and balanced taste.
Montepulciano is the product of thousands of years of Italian expertise. Still only produced within a certain distance of the hilltop town from which it took its name, Montepulciano has as much substance and body as the rocky outcrop upon which the town sits. Many experts like to pair Montepulciano with local Tuscan dishes - meat stews and pastas - and it is a superb accompaniment to lamb. But the spicy flavour of a good Montepulciano harmonizes effortlessly with everything from a margherita pizza to a lightly seared steak. It's a wine with enough life and distinctiveness to complement earthy tastes, without overpowering cooking. In short, Montepulciano is a masterpiece, in the great Italian renaissance tradition. Served to Popes since the sixteenth century, this spectacular wine variety has now become a worldwide brand, all from ancient roots in the Italian soil.
