Masciarelli Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Marina Cvetic 2016
|Region||Italy, Abruzzo, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo|
In this wine, sourced from the winery's San Martino estate in Chieti, aromas of tobacco, baking spice and grilled herbs meld with a dense dark-cherry coulis core. The firm medium-bodied palate is silken in feel upon entry, built by ripe cherry and dark berry flavors. Rounded tannins provide solid support alongside tangy acidity. It needs time in the bottle to come together further. Drink from 2021.
An oaky red, medium- to full-bodied and balanced, with sculpted tannins and a fresh mix of crushed black cherry and blackberry, dusty sage, fig cake and black pepper notes. Chewy finish. Best from 2020 through 2026.
