MASCIARELLI 2011 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.

Since the beginning, Masciarelli focused on the potentials of the native wine varieties speaking the language of his people: Montepulciano and Trebbiano. In Masciarelli's productive philosophy, great importance is given to the land and to its wine culture and tradition. The main passion of Gianni is Abruzzo, an extraordinary region, with intense flavors, tastes and scents that you can find in all its typical products: from pasta to wine, extra-virgin olive oil to cheese, from meat to saffron, truffles to pastries, to ventricina salami, to confetti.

This wine is hitting all the cylinders and quickly rose to the top of the barrel against some very good competition to capture our "Wine of the Month" title.

The nose is quite attractive with bright red fruit scents, touches of sarsparilla and root beer, camphor, ginger and a soupcon of earthy spice. In the mouth, soft red fruits dominate, berries and cherries, with earthy hints of anise and spice, black plum and strawberry compote. Velvety tannins and easy acidy lend structure to this quite tasty, easy-drinking wine. Awesome price-to-quality ratio on this top shelf bargain.
