Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Wine Pairing

Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is an Italian red wine made from the Montepulciano wine grape in the Abruzzo region of Italy. It should not be confused with Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a Tuscan wine made from Sangiovese and other grapes.

Food to pair with this wine includes lamb, ground beef, or bolognese. New wines are great accompaniments for sauces with balsamic vinegar or lime, but also sweet ones, based on sour cherries, blackberries or plums and apples. Game pies, braised meats, elaborate recipes with wild, spicy notes, porcini- or truffle-based dishes are perfect with more aged Montepulciano and combine perfectly with its earthy tones.
