Montepulciano – 2018 Limited Release Wine

Montepulciano (“mon-ta-pull-channo”) is a medium-bodied red wine grape that is supposed to have originated in central Italy. Montepulciano wines are commonly confused with Vino Nobile de Montepulciano, a regional name for the Sangiovese-based wine in Tuscany

Montepulciano is one of the most popular red grapes in Italy and has had a reputation for a juicy “pizza-friendly” red wines. Inky, black-fruit driven, chocolatey wines best enjoyed after 1 or more years of aging.

Food Pairing with Montepulciano

Medium-bodied red wines like Montepulciano generally pair with a wide variety of foods due to natural elevated acidity. However, with Montepulciano, the robust herbal and tobacco-like flavors with grippy tannin often call for richer and more savory foods. Montepulciano will cut through some of the meatiest meats (like beef brisket) and pair nicely alongside rich, roasted winter vegetables. If you learn only one tip about pairing with Montepulciano, it is to match it with something with substance (fat).
