A special wine maker dinner, hosted in The Petersham, Covent Garden.

This is an exclusive wine dinner where we will taste through an array of top wines from the historical Masciarelli wine estate, located in Abruzzo, central Italy.
Masciarelli produces some of the best Trebbiano d'Abruzzo and Montepulciano d'Abruzzo wines from the special region of abruzzo.
The wine selection on the night will include the iconic Trebbiano d'Abruzzo Marina Cvetic and two reds produced in very different ways which showcase the best of what can be accomplished with the Montepulciano grape: Iskra and Villa Gemma. The grapes are from different vineyards: Iskra Montepulciano Colline Teramane DOCG comes from a vineyard at 200mt on sea leavel. It is at the heart of Masciarellis history and was first produced in 2003. Villa Gemma Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC comes from a small plot of 4 hectares which is 500 metres above the sea level. the wine is aged in oak for 18 months and left in bottle for 2 years before release.
Dario Poddana will be coming from the Masciarelli estate to present these prestigious wines and will be selecting some older vintages to taste on the night. The line up will be as follows:

Villa Gemma Bianco Colline Teatine 2016
Trebbiano d'Abruzzo Riserva Marina Cvetic 2015
Iskra 2015
Iskra 2011
Villa Gemma Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC 2014

These wines will be paired with a carefully selected 5 course menu by Damian Clisby, Chef Director of Petersham Nurseries Group in Covent Garden.
