ESTATE & WINES
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 9,000 ft. The vineyards are located in the cru section called "Colle Morto di Bolognano". Marcello Zaccagnini, the dynamic director of the operation, together with his winemaker, Concezio Marulli, have been protagonists in renovating wine making in Abruzzo. Keeping an eye on tradition, each bottle in this line, wears a small piece of the "Tralcetto", or grape vine, around its neck; they also pay close attention to advancing technologies and modernization. Vines cultivated by Marcello Zaccagnini include Montepulciano and Trebbiano, both classic wines.
