Montepulciano d’Abruzzo “Marina Cvetic” Gianni Masciarelli, San Martino Sulla Marrucina 2017
Gianni Masciarelli, San Martino Sulla Marrucina
Strongly supported by Marina Cvetic, Gianni Masciarelli line was born in 2014 as a dedication to his partner in life and professional challenges. Consisting of Montepulciano, Trebbiano, and Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo DOC, this line is produced with quality grapes from the vineyards of Loreto Aprutino (Pescara), a particularly suitable area with excellent exposure and significant temperature difference.
Sourced from vines over 30 years old, this is deep and dark with brooding black fruits, vanilla, dark chocolate and truffle. Great balance is achieved through a mineral edge and perfect acidity. Tannins are certainly copious but ripe and enveloping. Boasting a Gambero Rosso winemaker of the year award and 92 points from the Wine Advocate, this one has it all. A perfect companion to fillet steak with black truffle.
Grape: 100% Montepulciano
