The protagonists of the sip are above all the aromas of red fruit and spicy hints and the final freshness. It is a perfect wine to combine with savory first courses of Abruzzo cuisine and more generally with pasta with meat or game sauce.
Zaccagnini “Tralcetto” is the typical Abruzzo red in its younger, carefree and less demanding version. The daily wine of the past revisited according to the modern oenological canons, which allow to have elegant and very drinkable reds. The grapes come from vines grown in the hinterland of Pescara, a few kilometers from the coast, in the locality of Bolognano, a splendid hilly area with a mild and temperate microclimate, which allows the grapes to ripen perfectly. After the harvest, the Montepulciano grapes are taken to the cellar and the grapes are softly pressed. Fermentation follows in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature with submerged cap maceration. It ages a few months in steel before being bottled.
