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

I've been getting in to Italian wines lately, and Montepulcianos are quickly becoming one of my favorites. This one doesn't disappoint! Coffee, chocolate and cherry on the nose. Soft tannins and a nice finish. Very good QPR.

We bought a case of different, individual bottles priced between $10-$15 to compare and contrast ... trying to find one that's good that we can buy a case of. Half way through the case and this one is the winner so far. Only 13% alcohol - we're not in California high octane Grape Koolaid territory anymore. Nice fruit though - very cherry with a hint of licorice on the nose. Very easy drinking. Not a lot of tannins. This one may be the winner of the bunch.

When in doubt for pasta night, this bottle is my go to. Always reliable, typical of the montepulciano style--- bright fruit, a bit of earth and enough body to stand up to pasta but not so much it can't be enjoyed alone.Plus the straw detail is a contemporary stylish nod to the bottles on the red checkered table, even while the wine is a cut above. Great Value

Big nose, bold intense oak and berry and long but smooth finish. Buy lots 'cause this should age well and develop very well.

Hard to beat much more flavor than a typical Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. Works well with veal.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Kräftiges, dichtes Rot mit bläulichen Reflexen; sehr fruchtiges und offenes Bouquet mit Aromen von Waldbeeren, Brombeeren, Weichselkirschen und etwas Zwetschgen, leichte Unterholznote; im Gaumen weicher Auftakt, erneut viel Frucht, vor allem Kirschen und Waldbeeren, saftig mit präsenten aber gut integrierten Gerbstoffen.
