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 remember when this wine was unknown and less than $8 in NYC. It has gone up in price because it is amazing. Try it!

A great deep, dark red wine that goes well with any red meat dishes. We really like it with lamb. This wine is the montepulciano abruzzo grape not to be confused with the Montepulciano region of Italy. Meant to be drunk now, it's tannins are easy and it's flavor of dark fruit and leather make it fun to drink.

Dal Tralcetto shows the softness of Montepulciano, with aromas of sweet cherry, prune, tobacco, cinnamon and toasted nut. A tiny grape cutting is affixed to the neck of the bottle as a throwback to old farming traditions.

Elegant and lightly gamy, with plum, fig and spice cake notes. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins framing the mocha-scented finish. Drink now.

Bright ruby red colour with garnet hues. Intense, characteristic bouquet that fully reflects the primary aromatic components of this variety. On the palate, it shows clear breed: it is full-bodied and robust, with a perfect integration of tannins and wood.

Intense ruby red color with violet nuances; intense, characteristic bouquet of the primary grape aromas; fruity component, full-bodied and robust, well-balanced with tannin and oak features. 100% Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

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. Ein Wein der sehr viel Freude macht und sich zudem mit einem ausgezeichneten Preis-Genuss Verhältnis gekonnt in Szene setzt!
