Original tasting and review : This is Cantina Zaccagnini il vino "dal tralcetto" Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Italy, 2008, finished at 13% alcohol.


In the glass: Deep red magenta, opaque from a half inch in.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows soft, deep and lusty red earth.  From the aroma, seems like this will be sweet and full.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact much as expected, sweet and full with a solid flush of sweet oak too.  Clean, easy finish that brings some tannins and cheek-residing acids to the mix.

In summary: Overall, rates a three stars with a plus for friendly boldness on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.  Good value.
