23 in stock
This is the 1.5 Litre Magnum in Gift Box
Smooth, rich and fruity, with dark cherries, black fruits and plums. Full bodied and elegant. Intense ruby red colour with violet hues and a nose of cherries and black fruits. The wine is dry and smooth and perfectly balanced with robust taninns, rounded and delicious. Very well balanced with just the right amount of acidity and a lovely long finish.
“Tralcetto” refers to the piece of wood tied around the bottle, which is actually a cutting from the vine the wine was grown on at Cantina Zaccagnini in Bolognano, Pescara. “Tralcetto dell’Amicizia”, literally “The wooden stick of friendship”
We found this unique wine in Harry’s Bar in Venice and also in Harry’s Dolci Restaurant on Guidecca Island.
Alcohol Volume: 12.5%
Style: Full Bodied Red
Producer: Cantina Zaccagnini in Bolognano, Pescara
Grapes: Montepulciano d’Abruzzo
Food Pairing: The high tannin content in Montepulciano means that it is best when paired with rich and fatty foods. While not the most elegant of food pairings, Montepulciano goes extremely well with meaty pizzas and fatty beef burgers. Other meats that fare well with this wine include roast pork, beef brisket, and shepherds pie.
