Abruzzo is a wine region in central Italy, east of Rome, and is known for its high-quality red and white wines made from traditional grape varieties.
The region's signature red wine is Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, made from the Montepulciano grape. These wines are full and rich, with flavors of dark cherry, blackberry and earthy undertones. They are often aged in oak barrels to add complexity and depth.
Abruzzo also produces white wines, of which Trebbiano d'Abruzzo is the most famous. These wines are light and refreshing, with flavors of green apple, pear and citrus.
In addition to these traditional wines, Abruzzo is also known for its Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo, a rosé wine made from the Montepulciano grape. These wines are typically dry, with aromas of red berries and a refreshing acidity.
