Abruzzo is home to four provinces: L'Aquila, Teramo, Pescara, and Chieti, each contributing to the region's wine diversity. The most prestigious appellation is Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, which should not be confused with the Tuscan town of Montepulciano.

The Colline Teramane sub-region of Montepulciano d'Abruzzo has earned DOCG status, the highest classification of Italian wines, for its superior quality and stringent production regulations. Another important appellation is Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, celebrated for its aromatic and well-balanced white wines.

Montepulciano reigns supreme in Abruzzo. It is the primary grape used in Montepulciano d'Abruzzo red wines, known for their deep ruby color, robust structure, and rich flavors of plum, blackberry, and spice. On the white wine spectrum, Trebbiano is the star, particularly in the Trebbiano d'Abruzzo appellation. This grape yields wines with floral and citrus notes, accompanied by crisp acidity. Additionally, the region has started to experiment with international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, though these have yet to achieve the acclaim of the native Montepulciano and Trebbiano grapes.
