Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva


 The "Villa Gemma" Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva


The Abruzzo vines, both black and white, are for the most

part indigenous. The most famous is Montepulciano, widespread

throughout the region. Montonico is also a native vine and is

grown on the slopes of the Gran Sasso, where the day-night

temperature range is considerable, especially in summer.

Passerina initially cultivated in the Teramo area, in the

municipalities of Controguerra and neighboring, up to beyond

Giulianova, is now present throughout the region. Trebbiano

d'Abruzzo is known for its great acidity and is usually used

as a cut to give freshness to the grapes. Cococciola is a

white grape variety with large grapes from the province of

Chieti, grown in particular in the municipalities of Vacri

and Villamagna. Pecorino is typical of the Piceno-Aprutina

ridge, although its origin seems to be that of the mountain

municipalities such as Visso, Arquata del Tronto and

neighboring ones. Sangiovese is also inevitable in Abruzzo,

as in all the queens of central Italy.


The "Villa Gemma" Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva, is made by

one of the most important names in the Abruzzo wine scene.

The Masciarelli winery represents the history and tradition

of the region and with its activity it has helped to raise

the level of production, enhancing the native vines of the

area. Today the estate covers over 300 hectares, among which

the versions of Montepulciano and Trebbiano d'Abruzzo stand

out. The Montepulciano grapes are harvested in the vineyards

of San Martino and Santa Marrucina above sea level, facing

east and on limestone soils. The wine ages for a period of

36 months, 24 of which in French oak barrels and completes

the refinement with another 2 or 3 years in the bottle.

The color is intense ruby red. Scent intense with notes of

dried rose,ripe red fruit, blackberries, plums, black fruits.

It has an important tannic texture, well integrated with a

dense and rich fruit,the finish is harmonious and very

persistent.

Guida dei vini

I greci hanno portato la vite nella penisola italiana che hanno chiamato Enotria ossia "paese del vino". I romani la diffusero nell'Impero,facendo dell'Italia uno dei luoghi cardine di questa cultura.

Si parla appunto di cultura del vino perché le varie pratiche vitivinicole hanno dato al vino significato sociale simbolico e religioso.Quando degustiamo un vino,siamo condizionati anche fattori culturali, ambientali e di stile di vita.In Italia e nell'area Mediterranea il vino assume un valore sacrale nella liturgia cristiana.

Il vino può raccontare la storia, la cultura nelle sue diverse espressioni.In un sorso di vino c’è il lavoro in vigna e in cantina.

Italy's vineyards are home to more than 2,000 grape varieties, many ofwhich are on the
brink of extinction. The safest and best-known Italiangrapes are Sangiovese, Barbera, Nebbiolo, Montepulciano and Pinot
