Ep. 1086 Attilio Alfino | Wine, Food & Travel With Marc Milon
Welcome to Episode 1086 Marc Millon interviews Attilio Alfino, the winemaker of Masciarelli Tenute Agricole, in this episode of Wine, Food & Travel with Marc Millon on the Italian Wine Podcast.

More about today’s guest:
Attilio Alfino, winemaker at Masciarelli Tenute Agricole, was born in Fossacesia in 1984. Coming from a family of vine growers for four generations, from an early age Attilio experienced firsthand the hard work of the grape harvest and the constant dedication to the vineyard, but also the satisfaction of drinking a wine produced in the vineyard on which he worked for years.
He studied viticulture and oenology at the Polytechnic University of Marche and during his studies he dedicated himself to the grape harvest every year and then, once he graduated, he began traveling to gain experience around the world: from 2010 to 2012 he was in Australia, where he worked as a “flying winemaker” first on Syrah for Mclaren Vale, and then fell in love with Pinot Noir, on which he would work in several wineries in Western Australia, Burgundy and New Zealand. Meanwhile, he also began working with Masciarelli Tenute Agricole since 2011. Today Attilio is Masciarelli’s oenological manager, where he is personally responsible for the vinification and aging of Masciarelli wines, coordinating the work of the technical team in collaboration with the consultant oenologist Carlo Ferrini.

MASCIARELLI Tenute Agricole was founded in 1981 by the entrepreneurial intuition of Gianni Masciarelli, a symbolic figure on the Italian wine scene and a leading figure in the affirmation of modern Abruzzo winemaking. The winery has reached the milestone of forty years of activity during which it has established itself among the most prestigious realities on the Italian and international wine scene. Today it is run by Miriam Lee Masciarelli and Marina Cvetic. Based in San Martino sulla Marrucina (CH), the company produces wine, extra-virgin olive oil and other specialties; it also distributes wines from Europe’s most interesting wine-producing areas in Italy through Gianni’s Selection. Masciarelli stands out for its work under the banner of respect for the environment, highlighted by its EMAS certification, and the right balance between modernity and tradition.
