MASCIARELLI Tenute Agricole was established in 1981 from the entrepreneurial intuition of Gianni Masciarelli, a symbol of Italian wine and protagonist of the success of modern wine production in Abruzzo. The beating heart of the winery is in San Martino sulla Marrucina, in the province of Chieti, and includes about 300 acres of vineyards and olive groves, lying between 13 municipalities in all 4 provinces of Abruzzo.
"A bright, balanced, medium-bodied red, with light, crisp tannins and flavors of crushed mulberry, wild herb, mineral and spice. Drink now."
