The line of products bearing his name was born in 1991 from the private and professional bond between Gianni and Marina. The Marina Cvetic line is characterized by the presence of pure international grape varieties (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay) alongside Montepulciano and Trebbiano. Structured and elegant, Marina Cvetic wines are a "voice out of the chorus" for the most demanding and savvy palates.
Symbol of the noble Abruzzo winemaking tradition, Trebbiano d'Abruzzo finds in the refinement in French oak barrels the ideal training ground for developing personality and character. The vineyards are located in three municipalities in the province of Chieti, in production areas with unique characteristics: in Bucchianico, at the foot of majestic gullies, in San Martino sulla Marrucina, where the vines are perfectly integrated into the wooded environment and in Ripa Teatina where there is a soil rich in skeleton and fluvial deposit. From these vineyards, grapes of great balance and concentration are obtained, thanks to the high plant density and manual harvesting and maceration at a controlled temperature.
