Zonin Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Premier 2009

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

The favorite of many who have discovered this delicious grape grown in Abruzzi. Smooth, round, fruity and spicy, it's as easy to match with pasta as it is with beef. Try it instead of Valpolicella or Chianti the next time you need a tasty weekday red.

It is here that the roots of this complex company lie: a company that now consists of 11 wine estates with more than 1,800 hectares (3,705 acres) of vineyards located in Italy’s most favorable terroirs. At the center of the Zonin universe is the land, the soils of the estates-which yield some of the greatest Italian wines-and particularly those at Gambellara, where this family of small farmer has steadily handed down, from one generation to the next, a sense of the vine’s life and its beauty. This commitment has brought the family to the very highest level of the Italian wine sector. It has been a journey between heaven and earth through a world of infinite sensations. And at the center there is always the land in which seven generations of the Zonin family have sunk deep roots. Read less

Bright ruby garnet cast. Moderately light-bodied. Low acidity. Subtly extracted. Dried herbs, minerals. Aromatically reserved, with a simple, supple palate feel. Highly quaffable, straightforward style.

The Abruzzi are crazy about their native red wine, and you will be too! Brimming with bright red berry fruit, this offering from Zonin is soft in the mouth and smooth on the finish. Always a reliable and affordable delight.

This is a flagship red and a real crowd pleaser: round and plumy, with ample body, good balance, and a soft finish, it is the vino-qua-non for red-sauced pastas, pizza, and bar-b-que.
