Masciarelli, Trebbiano D'Abruzzo DOC Riserva Marina Cvetic

Masciarelli

2018
Trebbiano d'Abruzzo
At the “heart” of Masciarelli’s history. The private and professional bond between Gianni and Marina originated this product line bearing her name in 1991. The interpretation of these wines is original and has a character. Marina Cvetic wines have full body and are elegant and are a “lone voice” for the most demanding and technical experts. This wine combines the fruity fragrance of the varietal with the softness and woodsy nuances of aging woods and which seduces the palate of anyone who tastes it. Golden straw-colored, it offers sensations of ripe tropical fruit and candied citrus, vanilla, lavender and hazelnut. Surprising, to the taste, for its structure and softness, it has fragrant acidity to support and long persistence from the calls of ginger. Excellent pairing with sushi and spicy dishes, it also accompanies crustaceans and grilled porcini mushrooms.

Abruzzo

Abruzzo is stretching from the heart of the Apennines to the Adriatic Sea, on a mainly mountainous and wild land. Winemaking traditions in Abruzzo date back to the sixth century B.C. thanks to the Etruscans, who played a major role in introducing viniculture to the area. The most favorable growing conditions are found in the low hills of Teramo, where the Colline Teramane thrives (its name means hills of Teramo). Some of the best wines infact come from the Teramo area, where a single DOCG exists for Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Colline Teramane, while some classic rosé wines – known as Cerasuolo - are now offered under their own DOC appellation.

DOCG and DOC

Abruzzo is home to one DOCG – Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Colline Teramane – and three DOCs: Contro Guerra, Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo.
