Masciarelli, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2017
Gianni Masciarelli, who died in 2008, was one of the brightest beacons of the Abruzzo. The region and its Montepulciano grape had wallowed in mediocrity for generations before Gianni brought in an ethos of hard work and low yields, proving that world-class wine can be produced in Abruzzo. This wine shows big, deep, dark brooding fruit, earth, truffle and mineral surrounded by copious yet ripe tannins and perfect acidity. Decant and try then leave and try again: it just gets better.
