About

91

"Well-honed aromas of spiced black currant and dark cherry meld with bits of anise, clove and wild mint on the nose of this single-vineyard wine. The medium-bodied palate is taut in feel, broadened out by some dark fruit weight and supported by finely meshed tannins."

91 Ian Dagata - Vinous Media

"Deep purple-ruby. Inky, flinty aromas and flavors are fresh, vibrant and very saline. Enters bright and smooth, then turns mountingly austere but with a glyceral touch to the long, mineral-enhanced fruit flavors."

90 James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

"Generous black-fruit character and, in spite of all the ripeness, a rather nice balance of fruit, fleshiness, moderately dry tannins and lively acidity. This would be a good choice for cassoulet or game stews. Drink now."

Product Description:

"The Zanna vineyard, from which this wine takes its name, is located 287 metres a.s.l. in the Municipality of Controguerra, along the hills to the right of the Tronto river that gradually decline towards the Adriatic sea, with a gentle climate characterized by natural fresh ventilation.

Colour: Intense ruby red, turning to garnet-red with ageing. Nose: blackberry, it reminds of fruit and dry flowers, almost ethereal. Flavour: รจ it is a wine of great character, soft tannins, and is velvety and refined, serving as a powerful accompaniment to rich sauces. " - Winery
