Masciarelli,in a span of only 30 miles between the Apennine Mountains and the Adriatic Sea, has carefully assembled 60 specific sites averaging just 5 acres and spread across the diverse soils and altitudes of the 4 provinces of Abruzzo.

These vineyards are farmed sustainably, and the 9 specific vineyards that bear fruit for this wine range in altitude from 435 to 1,200 feet, planted on soils of calcareous clay, and in a combination of traditional pergola as well as spur cordon and single guyot training that Gianni Masciarelli pioneered in the region.

After destemming, the grapes are pressed and undergo a short, warm fermentation on the skins in stainless steel.

Further aging in stainless steel maintains the freshness and vibrancy of the fruit, producing a wine that exhibits bright red berries, cherry, redcurrant and violet aromas and flavors.

The wine is then racked and bottled by gravity without fining or filtration.
