Professional Wine Reviews for Masciarelli Marina Cvetic Iskra Rosso Colli Aprutini 2004

Rated 89 by Stephen Tanzer
($50; Marina Cvetic) Inky ruby. Fresh but somewhat austere nose hints at blackberry syrup, graphite and herbs. The palate delivers ripe red fruits, more graphite and smoky oak flavors, with good balance and acid cut. Finishes with a light dusting of cracked pepper and a lingering chocolate-orange note. Made from 100% montepulciano grapes.

Additional Information on Masciarelli Marina Cvetic Iskra Rosso Colli Aprutini 2004

Winery: Masciarelli

Varietal: Trebbiano

The Trebbiano varietal grape is a white wine grape originally from Italy, but which has been successfully planted and cultivated in several European countries, as well as in many parts of the New World. Although it is widely grown around the world, it remains relatively unknown to wine drinkers, perhaps because it has mostly been used traditionally as a blending varietal, and for the production of fortified wines. However, it is used very well in parts of Tuscany and elsewhere in Italy for single variety wines, where it is prized for its elegant character and beautiful citrus flavors, alongside floral aromas and a great expression of terroir. As such, Trebbiano wines often hold interesting mineral notes, making them fascinating and complex white wines perfect for matching with a wide range of foods.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
