You will like to know that…

The company Zaccagnini was founded in 1978 in Bolognano, a small town in the Abruzzo. From a small family business, today, with its 300 hectares of vineyards, the winery is a consolidated international reality, which has achieved the objective of "total quality, from the bunch to the glass".

The Tralcetto is a wine that embodies the essence of the terroir. It is produced at 100% with Montepulciano grapes, a vine of Tuscan origin imported into Abruzzo towards the end of the 18th century. After vinification in steel, the wine spends 4 months in wooden barrels and can rest even more than 3 years in the bottle.

The Zaccagnini Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Tralcetto 2017 is an intense and characteristic wine with a strong fruity component. In the mouth it is full, robust and balanced, with a velvety and slightly tannic texture. Moreover, it has a good predisposition to ageing (up to ten years).

I bought the Zaccagnini wine online.
It has a dark red colour. The smell was strong and I liked it. The taste of this Zaccagnini is woody.

We had it with a deer stew. Nice chat with friends.
Good red wine and reddish brown edges. Smell of ripe fruit compote. Flashy flavours of red fruits.
