Tried this wine last night:
1. Masciarelli VillaGemma IGT: Colline Teatine/Abruzzo (13%; www.Vintus.com; Trebbiano d'Abruzzo/Cococciola/Chardonnay; www.masciarelli.it/) Gianni Masciarelli/SanMartino 2016: Pale yellow color; lightly fragrant floral/dandelions lightly stony/perfumed talc bit quotidian pleasant enough nose; rather soft/fat fairly lush/mouthfilling very light floral/dandelions light earthy/stony almost bland flavor; med.short soft/fat lightly floral/dandelions slight stony/earthy finish; a pleasant enough white but not terribly interesting; a rather Oakland wine; but reasonably priced at $14.00 (KK)

A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. Colline Teatine is an IGT you don't often see. Near the town of Chieti. Gianni's wife, Marina Cvetic, also makes a line of classic Abruzzo wines under her name.
