Technical Info

Estate

Founded in 1981, Masciarelli and its wines have become the standard-bearer for Abruzzo, and an inspiration to all emerging Italian wine regions. At just 22 years of age, Gianni Masciarelli believed that his home of Abruzzo and native grape varieties could produce world-class wines, but the true potential had yet to be realized. With a strong focus on vineyard management, Gianni went against the grain with intense vineyard site and farming focus, reducing yields, working organically, and greatly increasing fruit quality. In the winery, he broke the mold by gently and precisely handling fruit, and introducing French barriques to add depth and complexity to his wines, and resulting in better integration of tannin. The innovation Gianni and his wife Marina Cvetic brought to the vineyards and the winery has been rewarded with 29 Tre Bicchieri and recognition as a groundbreaking and iconic winery in Italy.

Vineyard

From the San Martino sulla Marrucina vineyard, at 1,200 feet above sea level, the Montepulciano grape is pergola trellised on calcareous clay.

Vinification

After destemming and pressing, the must is macerated with the skins for 24 hours before racking and fermentation in stainless steel. The wine is bottled in March following the harvest.

Vintage

The late winter of 2016 was unusually warm and left the vineyards in Abruzzo susceptible to spring frost, which is exactly what happened in some of the lower elevation vineyards where humidity was still lingering. The growing season saw sunshine often interrupted with clouds and mist, and the character of the wines tends toward an elegant, balanced profile; we love these vintages in Montepulciano given how they balance with the low yielding, ripe fruit Masciarelli produces.
