VINTUS · The Back Label E08 – Miriam Lee Masciarelli
Founded by Abruzzo native Gianni Masciarelli in 1981, Masciarelli and its wines have become the standard-bearer for the Abruzzo region, and an inspiration to all emerging Italian wine regions. The innovation that Gianni and his wife, Marina Cvetic, brought to the vineyards and the winery has been rewarded with 29 Tre Bicchieri, the prestigious award of the most renowned wine guide in Italy, and recognition as a groundbreaking and iconic winery.
Miriam Lee Masciarelli is the eldest of Gianni Masciarelli and Marina Cvetic’s three children and is already on track to move the family estate forward, together with her mother. Miriam is the estate’s brand manager and consistently emphasizes the need to learn about the land and culture of Abruzzo before truly understanding the wines.
