The Masciarelli winery was born in 1978 from the intuition of Gianni Masciarelli and began producing quality wines in 1981. Vital center is San Martino sulla Marrucina, a small village in the province of Chieti, at 420 meters above sea level and almost equidistant from the Adriatic Sea and the Majella peaks. Thanks to Gianni Masciarelli's pioneering approach to viticulture and his determination to promote Abruzzo's indigenous grape varieties, the company is today the symbol of the renewal of Abruzzo winemaking after World War II. Masciarelli now has over 320 hectares, among vineyards and olive groves, scattered in 14 municipalities in the provinces of Chieti, Teramo, Pescara and L'Aquila, and is dedicated to promoting wine tourism thanks to the acquisition and restoration of the Castello di Semivicoli, palazzo baronial of the seventeenth century surrounded by the Chieti hills. Year after year, the winery has seen its wines gain more and more credit and awards among Italian and foreign customers, as well as food and wine critics and experts, thanks to its loyalty to an ideal of uncompromising quality, respect for the typicality of the territory, production artisanal. Since 2008, the company has been led by Marina Cvetic Masciarelli who has particularly contributed to her internationalization by always pushing forward the quality standards and goals set by her husband.
