Super easy drinking, it's sure to be a crowd pleaser and your new go-to when you're not sure what to pair with dinner.

About Cantina Torre Zambra

The medieval village of Villamagna lies in the region of Abruzzo, and is a gorgeously picturesque area, fantastic for cultivating grape vines. Torre Zambra lies on its gentle hills, reaping the benefit of sitting where the mountains meet the sea.

Their winemaking approach is a relatively natural one, with a focus on sustainable farming. The results are stunningly fresh with slurpability and consistent high quality. They are wines to be enticed by, and to contemplate.

Additional Info

From the Importer

Montepulciano d’Abruzzo “Madia” is a perfect example of a traditional Abruzzese wine. The deep, intense pitch black hue, with its typical purplish glints, is due to Montepulciano grapes, rigorously selected on the hills of Villamagna, Abruzzo, at an altitude of about 200 metres. The unique south-west aspecting of the vines and the limestone and clay soils, together with a lucky position between seas and mountains, guarantee the excellent structure and complexity of this enjoyable red wine. The grapes are picked in the first ten days of October, and consequently the maceration in steel tanks at controlled temperature allows to extract the color from the skins. The wine then matures for a year in steel vats, and after the refinement continues for three months in the bottle.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Purple fruit, dark cherry, spice, dried herb and perfume. Medium-bodied, but deep and fleshy, with rich silty tannin, some new leather and savoury things, a distinct ‘mineral’ feel, and a finish of satisfying length. Plenty of chew and excellent flavour. A very good Montepulciano here. Hits the spot." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine.
