The sentimental and professional bond between Gianni Masciarelli and Marina Cvetic brought us many excellent wine gifts. Unfortunately Gianni is no longer with us but Marina was able not only to extraordinarily carry on what she and her partner started in 1991 but also to give it her very own personal spin.
As it happened with the amazing Riserva 2013, the proof that the Trebbiano d’Abruzzo is probably the Italian white grape with the best potential to produce long-lasting wines. Its golden yellow colour is immediately captivating; the bouquet is an elegant explosion of tropical fruits (papaya and passion fruit), of well-ripened yellow fruits (peach and apricot), of spices (vanilla) and acacia honey. The taste is rich, it recalls the honey flavour entwined in an acidic weave which grants crispness and richness of flavour. We strongly feel that its features will only improve over time. We paired it with a grilled grouper as exceptional as the wine.


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 Gianni’s 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.
