An intense, ruby-red colour with little transparency. The nose reveals great personality with powerful, elegant and clean aromas. Flavours of red berries, cherries and redcurrants with secondary notes of violet and tobacco. The tannins are fine and rounded.

Gianni Masciarelli, who died in 2008, and his wife Marina Cvetic have been among the shining beacons of Abruzzo. For years, this beautiful land, with its abundance of sun, great soil and the easy-to-grow Montepulciano grape, had wallowed in mediocrity as scores of producers were clearly taking advantage of what was given to them. Gianni, along with his inspiration, the reclusive genius Edoardo Valentini, proved to the rest of the world, through hard work, low yields, and a desire to be the best, that Abruzzo and the Montepulciano grape could produce world-class (and then some) wines. Over the years, his limited production wines have reached an exalted, cult status.
