Zonin Montepulciano D’Abruzzo DOC

The palate, driven by a robust alcoholic vein, holds fullness and austerity in perfect counterpoint!

The family also takes strides in preserving not only the beauty and pristine nature of the landscape, but also the environment for future generations. Today, the company has over 1,800 acres of land under vine in Italy.
