Made from a single-vineyard cru of Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Masciarelli's 'Iskra' cuvee is a bigger, deeper style of wine in comparison to their estate wine. Soft and appealing fruit on the nose, cherry liqueur, strawberry and followed by leathery notes. Full-bodied with red fruits and vanilla in the mouth, big-yet-velvety tannins and a medium-long finish.

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.
