Cantina Zaccagnini Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Riserva 2006 wine review by (PB)
One of my favorite wines and a super value wine, I review it here again and it is an intense magenta/cranberry jelly hue with sweet cherry/strawberry and tart pie cherry aromas with a touch of minerals and cigar box notes.
Palate--juicy core with a blend of sweet wild cherry and dried cherries as well. Plenty of fruity bready highlights and just one delicious, drinking wine. This will make our "stuffed shells" dinner a veritable Italian delight.
We're raising a glass cuz Sam's Club now has this wine for under $13 where before I had to drive 7 hours round trip, paid $17 a bottle plus gas and tolls--and it was still worth it!
