Zanna has an intense ruby red color that tends to garnet red as it ages, with an aroma of blackberries, fruits, and flowers. It is velvety and elegant with a great substance and mellow tannins. Sourced from a single vineyard in the Colline Teramane DOCG,100% Montepulciano from Abruzzo it shows very good vibrancy and concentration. Wine Enthusiast, 99 pts
This red is a delightful accompaniment when served with savory sauces, pastas, red meats, game, truffles, and mature cheeses.
