Gianni Masciarelli, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Classica, 2012Our price: £13.20From their estate in the region of Abruzzo, husband and wife pairing Gianni Masciarelli and Marina Cvetic make the most of the perfect landscape that surrounds them to grow Montepulciano grapes of the highest order. Previously, the vineyards of Abruzzo - which experience an abundance of sunshine and are home to fantastic soils packed nutrients – had been taken for granted by producers who opted not to work the land in the manner they should have and produce wines of sloppy quality. Gianni introduced an element of graft to the region, setting out to prove that these ‘basic’ Montepulciano grapes could produce world-class wines. And he was proved right, as gradually over time, his limited production Montepuliciano d’Abruzzo reds claimed cult status and were lauded by critics, proving the true potential of this area. After his tragic death, Marina took over the reign of the winery.
