Abruzzo: sea and mountains make for a great terroir
Abruzzo, its people and also its wine are often referred to as “Forte e gentile”. Strong and gentle. Wine-wise, this corresponds to Abruzzo’s two major grapes: the red Montepulciano and the white Trebbiano. Montepulciano covers 57% of the vineyards, while Trebbiano represents 29%. A few other grape varieties make the rest, including Pecorino, Cococciola and Sangiovese.
