Additional Information

The Riesling grapes go through a soft pressing of the grapes for maceration, soft pressing under gas to extract only the juice then cold must decanting followed by fermentation at low temperature. Aging occurs in in stainless steel tanks followed by aging in bottle. The 500 acres of the estate of Ciccio Zaccagnini 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 9,000 ft. Marcello Zaccagnini, together with winemaker, Concezio Marulli, have been protagonists in renovating wine making in Abruzzo, paying close attention to advancing technologies and modernization. Keeping an eye on tradition, each bottle in this line, wears a small piece of the "Tralcetto", or grape vine, around its neck.
