Montepulciano. That sexy little grape that hangs out in all the cool places in Tuscany. Originally hailing from Abruzzo, Montepulciano came waltzing into another wine region and caused all sorts of trouble, wooing the local men and women, making all the other varieties of Tuscany jealous with its maddeningly cool and suave ways. It’s a rebel here in Australia also, it shifts your perceptions of what wine should drink like. It’s edgy, sexy, delicious drinking; all bright crunchy fruits, detail, structure and line. Just perfect for those who want to give that rebellious streak a little airtime.
