Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Marina Cvetic Masciarelli, rich, soft, top Montepulciano. Masciarelli is an icon of wine making in Abruzzo. His wines always deliver on weight, richness but also freshness and drinkability. The Marina Cvetic is their go-to Montepulciano, sourced from three vineyard sites that are mostly around 30 years old. The style here is big wine with a sense of balance, deep, dark, brooding black fruits, earth, truffle and mineral, all surrounded by copious yet ripe tannins and well balanced acidity. Perfect for steaks.

Gianni Masciarelli, who died in 2008, and his wife Marina Cvetic have been among the shining beacons of Abruzzo, proving that Abruzzo and the Montepulciano grape could produce world-class wines. Over the years, his limited production wines have reached an exalted, cult status. The estate, whilst not natural, is well made in traditional style. Masciarelli is well-respected as an innovator in wine, having first used French oak barrels on Montepulciano. The estate is still being run very much in his image, growing Montepulciano, Trebbiano and other varieties across their 4 estates.

    I know this wine from living for a time in the region in which is it made. So glad to have found a source of supply in the UK. Try it, you will not be dispapointed but do not buy it all - leave some for me!
