Masciarelli

Masciarelli heeft een onbetwist leidende rol gespeeld in Abruzzo,
samen met met Edoardo Valentini, eens zijn grote voorbeeld. beiden helaas overleden.

Masciarelli is onder de dynamische en bezielende leiding  van de vrouw van Gianni, Marina Cvetic, doorgegaan met niet alleen het vasthouden van het zeer hoge nivo van de wijnen maar verdere kwalitatieve groei.

Mede dankzij een groot en sterk team van  zeer betrokken medewerkers. Want dat is wat opvalt als je Masciarelli bezoekt.  Daarnaast  heeft Masciarelli een kwalitatief sterke marketing en uitstraling.

De wijnen ; prachtige selecties in de Marina Cvetic en Villa Gemmalijn.
Grote concentratie en ongelofelijke diepgang bij de Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Villa Gemma. Villa Gemma staat l jaren in het selecte rijtje van de grote Italiaanse rode wijnen en was al eens rode wijn van het jaar bij gambero rosso ( 1997 jaargang )

De Montepulciano Marina Cvetic grossiert in grote noteringen ; diverse 3 bisschieri's bij de Gambero Rosso en was 3 x wijn van het jaar in Nederland ( Proefschrift Wijnconcours ) 

vergelijkbaar verhaal bij de witte selecties ;Trebbiano Marina Cvetic en de Trebbiano Semivicoli.
Diepgang en concentratie.
De Trebbiano Marina Cvetic is de houtgerijpte  (op nieuwe Franse barriques van Vicard ) is iets korter dan in de jaren dat Gianni de wijn zn internationale bekendheid gaf.

De Trebbiano Semivicoli kwam veel later en ondergaat geen houtrijping.

Beiden witte wijnen zijn zowel in Nederland als in Italie en elders bekroond met diverse prijzen (o.a.  tre bicchieri bij de Gambero Rosso en meerdere jaren in de top van beste witte wijnen in Nederland ! )

Beiden 1 x gekroond als beste witte wijn in de hoogste prijscategorie bij het Proefschrift Wijnconcours.

 



 

 

 

 

Gianni was een grote persoonlijkheid, een groot wijnmaker en ongekend dynamisch. Een groot verlies voor de Italiaanse wijnwereld.

In memoriam van Times van 3 okt. 2008 jl ;
The Abbruzzi region between Italy’s Apennine mountains and the Adriatic coast is not famous for the quality
of its wines. It is mostly an ocean of thin, sharp reds and whites made from the red Montepulciano and
white Trebbiano grapes. In the past 20 years, however, two names have stood out: Edoardo Valentini and
Gianni Masciarelli.
The two men represented the opposite schools. Valentini personified the very best of local tradition, while
Masciarelli drew his inspiration from France and sought to modernise a very rustic part of Italy. Valentini
died in 2006, and Masciarelli has now followed him at an age when he had still more to achieve.
Gianni Masciarelli was born in San Martino della Marrucina in 1956. He was the son of the vigneron Giovanni
Masciarelli, whose vines he took over in 1978. The younger Masciarelli had been in France and found that he
admired the French approach to winemaking. His first vintage amounted to just 2,000 bottles. By 1984 he
knew the sort of wine he wanted to make, and launched his Villa Gemma label for montepulciano. Like many
wines of the time, it was made in small oak barriques. It was an instant sensation.
Travelling in Croatia in 1987 he met a student of chemical engineering called Marina Cvetic. They were
married two years later. She was an enormous help to him in his work and he once conceded: “Without her
I would not have been able to succeed in anything.” From 1991 she was to receive homage in the form of a
series of wines dedicated to her. The Marina Cvetic label was meant to typify his most modern approach to
winemaking.
Masciarelli’s success was all the more remarkable for the fact that his vines were in the decried sub-region of
Chieti, which has the worst reputation of all. He used mostly local grapes — Montepulciano, which has
nothing to do with the Tuscan town of that name — Trebbiano, Cococciola, but also some Cabernet and a
highly praised Chardonnay.
Italy’s best-known guide, Gambero Rosso, awarded its Tre Bicchieri top mark to his 1995 montepulciano,
after which it continued to lavish praise on Masciarelli’s wines. The 1997 vintage was “as good as it gets”,
and whites such as the Marina Cvetic 1998 Trebbiano were also singled out.
By the time of his death, Masciarelli’s estate had become very large by European standards. He had almost
400 hectares (1,000 acres) and was making between three and four million bottles a year.
Masciarelli, who died in a hotel in Munich while on business, is survived by his wife and three young
children.
Gianni Masciarelli, winemaker, was born in 1956. He died of a heart attack on July 31, 2008,
aged 53
