Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Villa Gemma – Masciarelli Cellar


Il colore è rosso rubino profondo, tendente al granato ed impenetrabile.
Si presenta con una grande struttura, generoso alcol, morbidi e smussati tannini, ottima acidità ed ottimo bilanciamento.
Al naso lamponi, more, marmellata di fragole, caffè, cioccolato fondente, datteri, tartufo con una potente intensità.
Fantastico vino rosso con profumi intensi e complessi e corrispondenza in bocca degli aromi percepiti al naso, specialmente more, cioccolato, spezie e sentori “terrosi”.
Finale imperdibile, lungo ed avvolgente. Troviamo ancora ottime potenzialità per l’invecchiamento, dopo 10 anni dalla degustazione.
Abbinamenti: suggeriamo di abbinarlo con selvaggina come cervo e capriolo o carne brasata, formaggi stagionati e sicuramente con i tipici arrosticini di pecora.
O godendoselo da solo…


VILLA GEMMA 2006 – Cantina Masciarelli – 14,5°

The colour is deep ruby, clear and with thick tears.
The wine is full body, round, with generous alcohol, soft and refined tannins, fresh acidity and very good balanced. 
On the nose raspberry, blackberry, strawberry jam, coffee, black chocolate, dates, truffles, spicy wood, with a powerful flavour intensity.
Gorgeous red with blackberry and chocolate character, as well as hints of spices and earth.
Very long finish.
This wine has still potential for aging.

Tasted end of 2016 – age 10 years

Food pairing: we suggest to drink with game like deer, roe or braised meat, aged cheeses and of course with “arrosticini”.

..…Or just enjoy your glass of wine!

Sommelier by passion not by profession. In fact, in my working life I am an office mouse always submerged by payment deadlines and budgets. I love animals and especially dogs. it will perhaps be due to this special feeling that I learned from them to smell all the perfumes and smells that surround me. Since I was a child I enjoyed discovering with my mother all the ingredients she used in her delicious dishes by simply smelling them. For this I was called “truffle dog”. I do not have much visual memory so I use my nose to remember, to memorize and store all the wines I taste. I like to travel in the wine-areas of the world to discover traditions, famous or small unknown producers and share these emotions with my friends. I'll take you around with me.
