Cantina Zaccagnini Montepulciano d'Abruzzo On Sale: $11.99 2011 750ML    
Sku: 39013

The farmstead of Zaccagnini was founded in 1978 as a family-run winery, and today produces about 500,000 bottles per year from 100% handpicked grapes. While Abruzzo doesn’t attract Hollywood celebrities fleeing the spotlight or even many tourists it has one claim to fame: Marcello Zaccagnini and his winemaker, Concezio Marulli, who are eliciting nectar from its rough hills. Marcello grew up as a farmer working in the vineyards owned by his father, growing grapes to sell to local winemakers. In 1977, barely into his twenties, Marcello determined that if no one would buy their grapes, he would work with his father to make the wine themselves. Cantina Zaccagnini is made of 100% Montepulciano and was aged traditionally in Slavonic oak. The resulting wines tend to be softer and more accessible than Chianti or Nebbiolo, with lower acidity and mild sweeter tannins.

Tasting notes
Intense violet robe. Aromas of plums and ripe blackberry. Each sip delivers a mouthful of ripe berries, leather and black pepper with subtle hints of oregano, dried herbs, and a touch of vanilla; all leading to a dry, supple finish.

Review:
One VERY nice wine. I usually go for a big cab or Shiraz and tried this on a whim. Decanted and let it breathe for 4 hours prior to serving and the wine was one of the best I have had. Forget about legs...this wine stuck to the glass with an actual wall! Very smooth with low acidity. My new "go to" when I want to impress.

Picked this bottle from the local wine cellar just looking for something new without knowing much about Italian reds three or four months ago. I usually go for Rhone blends or cabernets, but this bottle has open me up to all different kinds of wines across the great Italian wine regions. It is a great table wine that has a price tag that doesn't need a special occasion to have. A must have for wine enthusiast that are just beginners!
