Masciarelli Marina Cvetic Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva 2019 (93 VM)

“Mentholated herbs lift depths of medicinal black cherry and clove as the 2019 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva San Martino Rosso makes itself known. This is a deep and powerful effort with masses of dark red fruits and exotic spices underscored by saline minerals as fine tannins mount toward the close. It finishes with tremendous length and structure, as a mix of clove, pine shavings and mint resonate. This powerful rendition of the Montepulciano D’Abruzzo Riserva from Marina Cvetic will require patience.” – E.G. 8/23

    Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC

    The Montepulciano Marina Cvetic represents an intense and remarkable expression of one of the historical vines of Abruzzo.  The 100% Montepulciano comes from eight of the estate's top parcels, across an altitude of 500 to 1,200 feet above sea level, on soils of calcareous clay and lime.  In these vineyards, we find not only the traditional Abruzzo pergola vine training, but also Simple Guyot and Spur Cordon as well.
