The Montepulciano Marina Cvetic represents an intense and remarkable expression of one of the historical vines of Abruzzo. The 100% Montepulciano comes from 8 of the Masciarello estate’s top parcels and truly represents the summit of what Montepulciano can achieve. This wine exemplifies Masciarelli’s break with historical, commercially minded wines of the region. After maceration and fermentation in stainless steel, the wine is transferred to French barriques for a further 12-18 months of aging before bottling. The resulting wine is a full-bodied Montepulciano with a silky texture and round tannins to complement the wine’s gorgeously ripe fruit. Deep and powerful, but also seductively aromatic with savory notes of black cherry, blackberry, chocolate, herbs, and spices.
