The sparkling beauty of the Semivicoli Castle

The view from the windows of the Semivicoli Castle, in the province of Chieti, sparkles with beauty.

Centuries of craftsmanship shine in the gold of the nearby Guardagriele, which Gabriele D’Annunzio called the “stone city”.

The snow glistens every year, until spring, on the Maiella in the Apennines and around the ancient Celestinian hermits that dot the massif’s National Park. The Adriatic Sea shines under the sun, just a few minutes away.

Beauty glows in every direction, highlighting this historical baronial palace, built between the 1600s and the 1700s in the highest spot in Semivicoli.

And beauty glitters even in the wine made in the Castle: a Montepulciano d’Abruzzo called “Iskra”, which Gianni Masciarelli makes from vines that are 45-years-old on average.

‘Iskra’, fittingly, is Slavic for “sparkle”.
