“Two other star-performing central Italian wines made from Montepulciano grapes are Rosso and Rosso Piceno, both from the Marche region. Despite the fact that these wines are often of higher quality than their mass-produced d’Abruzzo counterparts, they are markedly less famous. This is probably because their names communicate nothing about the grape variety they’re made from – something of a marketing disadvantage in the modern, varietal-focused global wine market.”- wine-searcher.com
