Masciarelli Marina Cvetic Trebbiano d’Abruzzo Riserva 2017 (92 WA)
“With fruit culled from the gorgeous, hilly landscape of San Martino sulla Marrucina, the Marina Cvetić 2017 Trebbiano d’Abruzzo Riserva ultimately shows more intensity on the bouquet than it does in the mouth. The bouquet is beautifully round and soft with exotic fruit, peach and nectarine. The aromas are expressive and loud. In the mouth, the wine offers a moment of thinness that follows through with fresh acidity, honey, saffron and toasted nut. Serve this Riserva with a platter of aged Abruzzese pecorino.”
The Trebbiano Riserva Marina Cvetic represents the ultimate expression for the estate of one of the historical vines of Abruzzo. Like Montepulciano, Trebbiano was once thought to be a workhorse grape without the potential to produce great wine. The interpretation of this wine is original and has a character. Marina Cvetic wines have full body and are elegant and are a “lone voice” for the most demanding and technical experts.
Founded by Abruzzo native Gianni Masciarelli in 1981, Masciarelli and its wines have become the standard-bearer for the Abruzzo region, and an inspiration to all emerging Italian wine regions. After a summer in Champagne, Gianni Masciarelli became convinced that world-class wines could be produced in Abruzzo, and through tremendous vision and non-stop innovation, Masciarelli became one of the most admired wineries in Italy.
