Review

"Chronicon" evokes time and history. This pure Montepulciano d'Abruzzo has its roots in the history of this territory and is headed for the future guaranteeing the taster excellent longevity. Aged in steel with a few steps in used wood (which can be up to a year of barrique), Chronicon is the perfect combination between the lively freshness of a Tralcetto and the explosive structure of a San Clemente. It is sold, however, three years after the harvest, and can easily age for over five years.

Chronicon is an intense and pleasant ruby-red wine with garnet reflections. The bouquet reveals an intense, characteristic, typical aroma of the vine, with notes of fresh and jammy red fruit, sweet spices, a little liquorice and vanilla. On the palate it expresses full body and robustness, with a tannic component finely balanced with the taste of wood, harmonious with ample fruity and floral notes. Very versatile during meals, it goes well with hearty dishes such as game pies, braised meats and elaborate meat dishes, but also arrosticini, grilled meat and roast chicken. It’s also great with pizza and kebabs.

I received these 12 bottles quickly and ItalVinus kept me informed of progress regarding execution and delivery. The wine is excellent but I knew it already so no surprise there.

Good Montepulciano

Very good every day wine and excellent to pair with a pasta dish like fusilli alla pizzaiola. Worth trying in your next purchase

Aceptable

Aceptable, pero nada extraordinario. Realmente no había probado nunca está variedad, pero me había creado unas expectativas algo más altas.

Wine from Zaccagnini

Zaccagnini

One says 3,000,000 bottles and one thinks of the wine industry. Marcello Zaccagnini's is instead eclectic and dynamic, very sensitive to the needs of the market, of course, but deeply rooted in love for the territory like few others. As one of the best represented Italian wineries in the world, Zaccagnini displays a virtuous union between entrepreneurial vision and vineyard and cellar expertise. In the countryside of Casauria, the Zaccagnini's have their roots, and here they ...
