Abruzzo's Adriatic coast is renowned for fantastic seafood, and the local Pecorino variety is the perfect match. Rocco Pasetti, one of the region's winemaking pioneers and an early champion of the variety, together with his son Franco, produce a consistently fine, pure and zesty version.

Vibrant aromas of stone fruit with citrus and grapefruit notes. The palate is crisp and zesty with layers of fresh peachy, tropical fruit characters. Lively and approachable, with texture and minerality giving depth, and backed by lively acidity.

The Pecorino grapes are sourced from the district of Caparrone, in the hills west of Pescara. Fermented in stainless steel and aged for 2 months on lees.

Rocco Pasetti's superbly sited 30 hectare estate lies in the heart of the Collecorvino district in the hills northwest of Pescara, recognised as one of the best vineyard zones in Abruzzo. Surrounding the winery the south-facing slopes of clay-chalk soils, at around 250m altitude, are ideal for the cultivation of Montepulciano, with Pecorino grown on the lower slopes. The cellar was completed in 2004 - carved into the hillside. Rocco's son, Franco Pasetti, is also a winemaker and now works alongside him at the estate. The Contesa wines are impeccably made expressions of Abruzzo's local grapes - modern and easy to drink, yet wines of real substance.

Great with a whole roasted turbot, should you ever come across one! Else serve with sea bass.

Just a really nice bottle of wine

Ona night out in London we went to Negroni's in Soho (just opposite Ronnie Scott's jazz club) and Olivia our host recommended this wine during our meal there. We liked it so much we bought some extra for home through through N D John Wines. I know taste is a subjective thing but for just a few quid more it tasted so much better than a normal bottle of supermarket wine.
