Masciarelli Marina Cvetic ISKRA 2015 (93 WA)
“Fruit for this wine comes from high-altitude vineyards in the Apennine Mountains, which are close to the milder-climate influences of the Adriatic Sea. It is a warm and sunny expression that ages in oak for 12 months, with another two years of resting time in bottle before its commercial release, yielding soft and velvety fruit that embraces and caresses the palate. The Marina Cvetić 2015 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Colline Teramane Riserva Iskra offers black fruit tones that are plummy and ripe in intensity. This is a medium to full-bodied red with a bold and lasting mouthfeel to be enjoyed”
Marina Cvetic ISKRA 2015
Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Colline Teramane DOCG
ISKRA is the Serbian word for “spark,” and Gianni Masciarelli dedicated this wine to his wife, Marina Cvetic, who is from Serbia. It is among the Marina Cvetic line of wines, which Gianni created for his wife. Made from a single-vineyard cru of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, ISKRA is a wine of extraordinary distinction and depth.
Through tremendous vision and endless innovation, Masciarelli has not only become one of the most admired wineries in Italy, but is often regarded as the standard-bearer of the Abruzzo region. Led by the mother-daughter team of Marina Cvetić and Miriam Lee Masciarelli, the winery is the only one in Abruzzo to own land in all four provinces and produce wine from 100% estate-owned vineyards.
