About

91

This family concern has grown from 2.5ha to more than 300ha since the early 1980s. Created in 1997, this flagship wine is full of character: medium-weight with black fruit flavours, firm tannins balanced by floral scents and refreshing acidity. A great all-round foodie wine.

Product Description:

Gianni Masciarelli decides to dedicate an entire product line to his life and work companion Marina Cvetic, to thank her for her determination and enthusiasm, at a time when it was unusual to call a wine with a woman's name, furthermore “foreigner”. Thus was born, among the general distrust of the traditionalist Abruzzo wine landscape, the Marina Cvetic Line, whose symbol is today the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo San Martino Rosso, a national and international best-seller. Fruit of a careful selection of Montepulciano grapes from the finest Masciarelli vineyards in San Martino Sulla Marrucina – Cave, San Silvestro e Colle di Paolo, about 450 meters a.s.l.), the company true heart and headquarter – this wine best represents Marina Cvetic’s winemaking style and a genuine and deep taste of Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. In fact, San Martino is an area particularly devoted to wine production, due to its unique soil and climate conditions: being half way from the Adriatic Sea and the Majella massif (one of the highest of the peninsula). This area is able to provide the wine with aromas and elegant notes unique in the Abruzzo region, due to a significant temperature range and a constant movement of streams that mix sea breezes to the cold wind of the mountain all year round. Born from this exceptional melting pot, the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Marina Cvetic has established itself over the years as one of the most original expressions of the vine, presenting a unique and complex, very pleasant identity, recognizable to the public.
