MASCIARELLI 2012 MONTEPULCIANO D'ABRUZZO

The Azienda Agricola Masciarelli was established in San Martino in 1978 by Gianni Masciarelli and started producing wines in 1981. Gianni inherited from his grandfather Giovanni the passion for the vineyards and the wine. In the old cellar of his grandfather, who was producing small quantities of wine for the love of it, Gianni started creating his wines.

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo was designated as a DOC in 1968. It covers most of Abruzzo ranging from Molise in the south, the Marche in the north and inland against the Apennines Mountains. The Montepulciano grape has a deep purple and ruby color to its juice. It has lower acidity (especially for an Italian varietal) and mild sweeter tannins. The resulting wines tend to be softer and more accessible than Chianti or Nebbiolo for example. This is a delicious wine without breaking the bank. It provides easy drinking cherry and red raspberry flavors and slightly earthy notes.
