From the vineyard to the table
Zaccagnini farmstead was founded 1978 with the name “Fattoria Zaccagnini”. Located in the core of population center of Bolognano. It started as a family-run business and then grew quickly while aiming at “total quality from the bunch of grapes to the glass”. At present their production is about 500.000 bottles per year, producing with cutting edge vinification technologies and monitored throughout the production process: limited output, constant monitoring of the vineyard, biocompatible operations, hand-made only harvesting.

It is said that as far back as 450 BCE, the Greek physician Hippocrates recommended wine to combat fever, disinfect wounds, and provide nutritional supplements.
In the intervening years, research has provided ample evidence of the truth in Hippocrates' early observations. In fact, since the 1970s, many studies have concluded that moderate intake of red wine does indeed have salutary health effects, although the exact reasons are still debated.
Red wine consumption helps prevent coronary disease and possibly some forms of cancer due to a class of compounds known as catechins (flavanoids). Like resveratrol, which aids grapes in fighting fungal infections, they act as anti-oxidants and anti-coagulants. It has been found that anti-oxidants remove free radicals -- ionized oxygen atoms in the blood that are known to cause cellular damage.
