Day 286 Drink: Cantina Zaccagnini 2007 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo
Cantina Zaccagnini is a family winery that makes wine in the Abruzzo region of Italy, east of Rome.
Cantina Zaccagnini 2007 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo pours a rich garnet color with a dark cherry aroma. The wine has plenty of ripe fruit, hints of cedar and tobacco. The tannins are present and help dry the palate, but are silky and do not dominate the overall body. Nice wine to go with a good pasta dinner.
