Masciarelli Tenute Agricole was established in 1981 from the entrepreneurial intuition of Gianni Masciarelli. Gianni was a believer in the high quality of wines that could come from the diverse regions of Abruzzo, often overlooked by drinkers on the west coast and north of Italy. Valori is a small, family owned winery represented and distributed by the Masciarelli family. They have close family ties to each other. Valori wines come from the western coastal section of Abruzzo, based around the town of Pescara, where the mountains meet the sea. This region is a popular tourist destination due to the abundant sunshine, sand and seafood from the Adriatic sea. The wines reflect this in their light, mineral body, warm but balanced flavours and exceptional acidity to match a diverse range of dishes. Wines are made by the ever-energetic Luigi Valori (former professional footballer for Ascoli Calcio). He has been producing wine on his family estate since 1996. His vineyards in the commune of Teramo in northern Abruzzo near the Marche border are certified 100 percent organic. He has been producing wine on the estate since 1996.

Mark Faber

Bright, vibrant nose bursts from the glass with redcurrant and bramble notes, which translate well on the palate, supported by a chalky mineral line of acidity and a lacy frame of tannin. Ready to drink now but will age for a further 2-4 years.

(2016 vintage) An absolutely delightful nose, showing hedgerow and juicy red and wild and spicy dark bramble fruits. Pure fine linear plate with excellent fruit and sculpted tannins. A light and vibrant wine showing delicious dark fruits with a coiled tight finish.

(2017 Vintage) Blackberries, cloves, smoked meat and some dried seaweed, too. It’s full-bodied and flavorful with wonderful depth of ripe black and blue fruit, as well as mineral and umami notes. Firm yet velvety tannins. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
