Winery details: Masciarelli Tenute Agricole
Masciarelli Tenute Agricole was established in 1981 from the entrepreneurial intuition of Gianni Masciarelli, a symbol of Italian wine and protagonist of the success of modern wine production in Abruzzo. The beating heart of the winery is in San Martino sulla Marrucina, in the province of Chieti, and includes vineyards and olive groves, in all 4 provinces of Abruzzo.
In the last 30 years, Masciarelli Tenute Agricole has studied and enhanced the regional agricultural heritage, revealing the winemaking potential of a land of strong contrasts – and therefore of unique terroirs – such as Abruzzo.
Today Masciarelli is the only company capable of reading the extraordinary diversity of Abruzzo, with over 60 parcels of vineyards planted in the 4 provinces of Abruzzo.
