Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 'Chronicon' Zaccagnini 2019

The Montepulciano Chronicon by Zaccagnini is a young but lively interpretation of the Abruzzo prince vine. It presents itself to the eye with a ruby red with light nuances of garnet and releases hints of black cherries, raspberries and an interesting note of graphite, with balsamic puffs. At the mouthfeel it is rich and fresh, convivial, with excellent freshness and intense tannin.

Glass
Medium open goblet
Medium open goblet

Perfect for young and medium bodied red wines which don't require excessive oxygenation to open. The opening, slightly tighter than the body of the glass, favors the concentration of aromas towards the nose, enhancing the perception of aromas and limiting the dispersion
