VILLA GEMMA

The company's flagship is the line that best embodies the stylistic research and taste of the winemaker Gianni Masciarelli. Austere and important, Montepulciano D’Abruzzo Villa Gemma Rosso provides an unprecedented interpretation of the great native, helping to make it rightfully enter the map of world viticulture that matters. Alongside it, as if to balance so much complexity and structure, two fresh and lively wines: Villa Gemma Bianco and Villa Gemma Cerasuolo.
