Cantina Zaccagnini
However, it is their Montepulciano d'Abruzzo - nick-named 'Twiggy' - that has created their fame and carried the rest of their wines forward into the public eye. A simple idea of taking a piece of the previous year's cut vines and attaching it to the bottle of each wine has created a brand almost by accident. This red though should stand on its own two feet: medium bodied and full of dark and red fruit flavours, it is a delicious example that put into shade the many inexpensive Montepulcianos that are seen in so many Trattorias across Italian cities.
