Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Riserva 'San Clemente' Zaccagnini 2017

The Montepulciano Riserva San Clemente by Zaccagnini is an identitary and aromatically rich red wine from Abruzzo that shows an intense ruby red color and releases fruity hints of currants, blueberries and cherries to the nose, framed by spicy scents of cardamom and coffee, with balsamic details. At the mouthfeel it is mellow but of character, with integrated tannins and a finish of Mediterranean herbs.
