VINEYARD | We are faced with a selection of the selection of Trebbiano grapes vinified in a single 700-litre French oak tonneau, purchased by Gianni Masciarelli, who was always in search of attention to detail, for an initial friendship project. The barrel was found by his wife Marina Cvetic in the cellar, hence the production of a wine that is bottled on Gianni's birthday. The wine rested for 28 months and met the bottle on April 15, 2018. 800 examples produced.
PERSON | Marina Cvetic and her daughter Miriam Masciarelli firmly guide the winery founded in 1981 by Gianni. The agricultural project represents a sort of compendium of Abruzzo viticulture, with estates that unfold in different regional quadrants, from the warm Teramo hills to the Ofena plateau, passing through the Pescara hills to the Teatine ones. For this reason, 300 hectares in total, the range of wines is wide and alongside the typical Abruzzo grapes there are ambitious selections based on international vines.
WINE |Wow. The green reflections already say a lot about the vitality of the wine. The aromas are harmonious and perfectly bonded, ranging from notes of mountain butter, almonds, candied citrus, sandalwood tones. The mouth is creamy, the oak is present and yet absent, it accompanies and gives rhythm, for an incredibly solid, symphonic and deep flavour texture. Hints of white chocolate and buckwheat are thrown in by a vivid acidic freshness, citrusy and spicy notes. The finish is of pure harmony, very long but above all very good.
