About the Producer

The "Azienda Agricola Ciccio Zaccagnini" was founded in 1978 and today produces approximately 1,200,000 bottles per year. Under the guidance of its winemaker, Concezio Marulli, the company applies the most up-to-date wine-making technologies and implements a total quality control system throughout the entire production process.

The history of the Zaccagnini vinery is rooted in the passionate relationship between man and nature, wine and arts, celebrated year after year, in November, with "Uvarte".

Famous artists are invited and dedicate a label to the winery. These labels are part of a collection line.


Grapes

100% Pinot Grigio


Vineyard

The 500 acres of the estate of Ciccio Zaccagnini is located in Bolognano, alongside the Rome-Pescara highway, in the province of Pescara. It is situated approximately 30 miles from the coast and about 8 miles from the Maiella Mountain which rises to 2,700 metres a.s.l.


Vinification

The grapes are soft pressed with cold skin contact and vacuum pressing; low-temperature maceration is allowed to take place. Slow controlled fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks.


Ageing

The pinot grigio is allowed to rest in stainless steel vats and then in the bottle before being released for sale.


Tasting Notes

Pale yellow with green nuances; very delicate bouquet, fragrant, aromatic, very fresh and well-balanced with typical nuances of fruit rinds, orange peel and pear skins.


Analysis

12.5% alcohol volume.


Food Suggestions

Excellent as an aperitif or with fish dishes (salmon and tuna in particular); well suited to accompany also Indian and Japanese dishes, such as sushi. Ideal for soft paste cheeses such as ricotta and asiago.

Serving temperature 10°C.


Cellar

This pinot grigio is best enjoyed while young and within a year from its release.
