Cantina Zaccagnini Il Vino Dal Tralcetto Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

A new favorite . . .

"Aged in French oak barrels for eight months, followed by several months in the bottle prior to release, this is a wine – rife with succulent ripe fruit and soothing touch of vanilla – that has truly come into its own. So much so, in fact, that James Suckling of the Wine Spectator bestowed a whopping 91 points (out of 100), and rated it 89 and highly recommended."
