Since its founding in 1978, the successful family-run Masciarelli winery has grown from its original 2.5 hectares in the town of San Martino to a total of 320 hectares today, spread across 14 different towns and villages throughout Abruzzo’s provinces. Bright ruby in colour, with an attractive nose of red cherry, with subtle violet and tobacco notes. The palate frames blackcurrant and damson fruit with taut tannins and notes of liquorice and spice. Medium weight and a streak of acidity make this a great all-round food wine. Best served with tomato-based pasta dishes.
