Additional Information

The 222 acres of the Ciccio Zaccagnini estate is located in Bolognano, alongside the Rome-Pescara highway, in the province of Pescara. It is situated approximately 30 miles from the coast and about 8 miles from the Maiella mountain which rises 9000 ft.

The vineyards are located in the cru section called “Colle Morto di Bolognano”. Marcello, the dynamic director of the operation, together with his father Ciccio, have been protagonists in renovating wine making in Abruzzo since 1978. Keeping an eye on tradition (each bottle of Zaccagnini Montepulciano wine wears a small piece of the “Tralcetto”, or grape vine , around its neck), they pay close attention to advancing technologies and modernization. Vines cultivated by Marcello Zaccagnini include Montepulciano and Trebbiano, both classic D.O.C., wines.

This wine is made 100% from Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. The grapes are vacuum crushed and undergo criomaceration. Afterwards, the grapes are soft pressed and the free run juice is clarified. The juice then undergoes a cool, controlled fermentation.
