"The Marina Cvetić 2016 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Colline Teramane Riserva Iskra hits it out of the ballpark with an extra crisp zing and an energetic quality of fruit. I always think of the stubborn rockiness of the Apennines when I taste the wines of Abruzzo, and I am reminded of that characteristic firmness and rigidity here. Give the wine an extra year or two to unwind, but if you have a bottle in front of you, no harm is done if you decide to drink up now. This pretty Montepulciano is elegant and accessible at the same time. Enjoy it with a savory pie of ricotta, aged pecorino cheese and guanciale. Drink: 2020-2027. 94 points

Marina Cvetić is the wife of the late Gianni Masciarelli, and her name is a sub-brand of the Masciarelli line of wines that are also reviewed in this report. In 2019, the winemaking team released a new white wine, the Marina Cvetić 2017 Abruzzo Malvasia Iskra (with a mere 1,800 bottles released). Fruit for this wine comes from a vineyard that was planted in 2010."
