Montepulciano (mon-ti-PULL-chee-ah-no)

Confusingly, this is not the grape of the Tuscan wine Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, which is made from sangiovese. Instead, the grape montepulciano is widespread throughout central and southern Italy and is especially well known in Abruzzi, where it makes the good, rustic montepulciano d’Abruzzo.
