A rambling viticultural backwater, the Abruzzo is sparsely populated, extremely beautiful, and home to just two varieties: Trebbiano and Montepulciano. The former rarely distinguishes itself but Montepulciano, on the other hand, is capable of true greatness.
The problem here, and throughout the South, is that the culture of co-operative winemaking and staggering yields rob the wines of any concentration.
Things are changing, however, and Elena Nicodemi is firmly committed to improving the standard.
