A warm, nicely structured red, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Annibale Le Clivie originates in the province of Chieti, between the massif of the Maiella and the Adriatic Sea. The climate, calcareous clay soil and meticulous vinification give a warm, complex wine with a distinctive yet harmonious tannic texture. The bold character of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Annibale reflects its history. According to legend, Hannibal offered cups of Montepulciano to soldiers to boost their spirits.

In our opinion, the Montepulciano variety cultivated in the Abruzzi clearly has a Greek/Balkan origin, due to its complex morphological characteristics, its vigour, and so on. We also believe that it became widespread in the very distant past, perhaps even in pre-Roman times, when it made its home in the Peligna Valley between the villages of Raiano and Sulmona, which, as history would have us believe, was colonized by Paeligni people coming from Asia Minor or Illyria in approximately the 12th century BC.
