Cantina Zaccagnini is a winery located in Abruzzo, Italy. The winery was established in the late 1970s by Marcello Zaccagnini, who had previously worked as a farmer in his father’s vineyards, whose fruit was sourced by other winemakers. When the market for those grapes died out, he decided to produce wine himself, with his cousin Concezio as the winemaker, eventually building a successful family business. The value-driven wines are produced with a signature grapevine twig wrap, which has been a key point in its successful brand recognition among consumers. The wines are produced as still reds, whites and that regional Abruzzo rosé specialty, Cerasuolo.  Read less

Scent is a bit earthy together with berry and spice. Dry and powdery, with flavors of licorice and spice.

Uncle Rob bought this wine to my housewarming. Didn't get to taste a full glass..but from the sip I had decided it was worth buying another bottle to enjoy.

A good go to wine you can depend on to deliver a consistent taste. Would be nice if it had a little more flavor.

Montelpuciano d'Abruzzo has always been my go-to wine. And at $15 this particular bottle is the standard on which all other Montelpucianos are judged. For my taste buds this wine is perfectly balanced. Great with anything. I've had better Montelpucianos but only at a much higher a price, but really you have to get into the $60 range and up to find something comparable.

Deep garnet-purple colour. Ripe cherry and tobacco leaf aromas with a touch of game. Medium-full body with good concentration of fruit and a medium to high level of balancing acidity. Medium+ level of grainy tannins. Long finish. Tasted July 2009.

A terroir-driven wine that even comes with its own piece of grapevine on the bottle. Loaded with floral aromas, dates, and red berries, this medium-bodied red is great with pizza and red-sauce dishes.

Aromas of roses, dried flowers and fruit follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with good fruit, fine tannins and a medium finish. This is always excellent value. Drink now.

Big and juicy. Very ripe and plummy, with hints of raspberry sauce. Full-bodied and chewy, with lovely round and soft tannins and a long finish. A serious effort. Best from 2004 through 2007.

A tasty red, with currant, passion fruit and fig, with a hint of spicy vanilla. Medium-bodied, with fine, well-integrated tannins and a clean, chocolaty finish. Drink now.

Shows aromas and flavors of forest fruits, with a hint of oak. Medium-bodied, with a well-balanced palate and a hint of vanilla on the finish. Nicely done. Drink now.

Medium-bodied, with ripe red raspberry and black cherry notes. Subtle spice notes highlight the bright red fruit flavors, but the mouthfeel is smooth and mellow. Excellent table wine - pairs with almost anything!
