Perhaps some will turn their noses up at the symbolic and sly packaging, but Tralcetto is and remains one of the symbols of Italian wine. Even the most skeptical must agree that this wine is not just presentation, but also substance. First of all, the idea of rolling a small vine around the neck of the bottle is not a superficial operation. On the contrary, it bears witness to the lasting bond between this great winery and its land, between its entrepreneurial futurism and the solid approach to working in the vineyard.
What does this wine taste like?
Tralcetto is a wine of a territorial character, of an intense ruby red colour with violet reflections. The bouquet reveals an intense and characteristic aroma with all the primary aromas of the vine: notes of jam of small red fruit, bitter almond, spices, combined with ethereal sensations. The taste is full and well structured, tannic and warm, soft and with a great taste-olfactory persistence. Strong body, sometimes a bit rough and lively, but well balanced by the perfect tannic qualities and the wood for aging.

Try it with a real arrosticino or with a nice pecorino: those limits will change their appearance and will go on to expand the ranks of the merits of this wine.

Ratings and awards
If ever there was a red wine that is seriously undervalued, this is it. Do not let the low price give you the impression that it is "cheap", it certainly does not drink like that. It is a very smooth, consistent wine, with or without food. It is found on the winelists of some 5 star hotels in Ireland, which should reflect its quality. I will continue to buy it as long as Zaccagnini produce it at this quality and buy it from Italvinus as it is so easy to do so.
This is the second time I have had a delivery from you! The first time I was very surprised at how quick my wine was delivered and expected that to be a one off. I was very surprised and very pleased to have the same service the second time round. I would highly recommend your company for any wine delivery. The product/wine is excellent quality can’t wait to get stuck in.
Lovely medium bodied easy drinking red wine.
Friends of our came across this wine in an Italian restaurant in Javea, on the Costa Blanca in Spain. When they told me about it I suggested they see if Italvinus have it. The next thing I saw was a bottle on a whats Ap from our friends. I then ordered some myself and three days later it was delivered. Great service and we really like the wine too!
Love this wine
Love this wine. Full bodied, but not too heavy, smooth and goes with everything. This wine has an intense ruby red colour with violet nuances and a characteristic bouquet of primary grape aromas. It has a fruity component of black cherries and hints of spice, and it is robust and well-balanced with tannin and oak features.
Superb Montepulciano D Abbruzzo
I first discovered Montepulciano D Abbruzzo one time I was in Stuttgart. I found it delicious and full tasting. But there is so much available that is not so luxurious. This one is at the top end of the scale despite being very reasonably priced. I'll be back for more.
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...
