Its intense ruby red colour, with bright purple reflections and a unique density, strikes you already from pouring this wine in the glass. We could say you also may want to chew this wine. One of the most amazing Italian red wines, with an infinite range of aromas combined in a perfect balance. Starting from fruity cherry, black cherry and blackcurrant shades but also floral violet notes. The balsamic mint, dried rosemary and vanilla and cocoa flavours are vivid as well. The taste is a true harmony, a great mixture of ripe fruit and richness with a unique persistence. We could not ask for more when we tasted it with an outstanding braised meat dish.

Masciarelli Tenute Agricole was founded in 1978 by the vision of Gianni Masciarelli to make great wines out of Abruzzo native grapes. The beating heart of the winery is in San Martino sulla Marrucina, a village in the province of Chieti, but the winery owns vineyards and olive groves in Abruzzo 4 provinces. The production now includes 18 labels and 5 product lines. The company mission is still inspired by Giannis principles, whose work is carried out with passion and determination by his wife Marina Cvetic: pursuit of excellence, respect for Abruzzo uniqueness, craft production. In recent years Masciarelli inaugurated after a long restoration the Castello di Semivicoli, a XVII century baronial mansion turned into a Relais de Charme in the vineyards, reference point for wine tourism in the area.
