"The 2016 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Riserva San Martino Rosso is a formidable wine that opens to a stirring presentation of luscious black fruit, spice, tar and licorice. The wine's density is extra rich and concentrated, but the magical aspect to the classic 2016 vintage is that the wine never appears too heavy or bold. Ultimately, there is a careful sense of measure and balance achieved here, despite the opulence and sheer exuberance of the material at hand. This is a bottle I drank and enjoyed immensely. This wine aged in new and neutral French oak for 12 to 18 months. An ample 300,000 bottles were made. Drink: 2020-2026. 93 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."
