Tullum, Abruzzo, Italy

Situated only three miles from the Adriatic Sea in central Italy’s Abruzzo region, the 69-acre Tullum DOC—which is also referred to as Terre Tollesi—earned its DOC status in 2008. A spectrum of wines is produced in this area, in white, red, sparkling and dessert styles. Trebbiano Toscano forms the base of the whites, while Moscato and Malvasia dominate the passito bottlings. For reds, Montepulciano is the leading variety, which isn’t surprising considering Abruzzo’s sole DOCG is Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Colline Teramane—a wine that must be at least 90-percent Montepulciano.
