Masciarelli Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2016 (90 JD)

“Released under screw cap, the 2016 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo from Masciarelli offers a charming, medium-bodied, savory style as well as notes of spiced cherries, cedary herbs, leather, and dried flowers. It’s nicely balanced, medium-bodied, and has a clean, dry finish that keeps you coming back to the glass. It’s about as gulpable as they come and is well worth seeking out. I suspect it’s a smoking value and would be one heck of a house red.”

    The first line created by Gianni Masciarelli has become over the years a landmark for the company and its customers, in addition to being the most consistent and known, in Italy and abroad. Its wines, Montepulciano D’Abruzzo DOC, Trebbiano D’Abruzzo DOC, and Rosato IGT Colline Teatine are today “a classic”, which can reflect the genuine taste of tradition and the quality of Abruzzo native vines.
