Pecorino has become very fashionable, and is now one of Italy's fastest-growing white varieties - 'though still not widely planted. It's a perfect accompaniment to the fantastic seafood of Abruzzo.

Ripe honeyed nose with aromas of white peach and citrus fruits, and gently nutty, savoury notes. The palate is full and textured with delicate ripe fruit flavours leading to a long, spicy finish. 

Contesa Pecorino is made from Pecorino grapes cultivated in the 1.7 hectare Vigneto al Lago vineyard, in the Collecorvino region. The south facing vineyard is at an altitude of 160 metres above sea level and has clay/limestone soil. Planting density is 6,000 vines per hectare and the average yield is 70hl per hectare. The harvest takes place at the end of September. The grapes are crushed, pressed and left to settle overnight at low temperatures. Fermented in stainless steel and bottled at the end of January.

Try with fish, seafood, white meat and cheese.

A joy to taste!

An outstanding white wine from Abruzzo, Italy. It has all that a white wine lover looks for: a lingering taste, not too dry, it maintains its quality, it has a lovely citrous after-taste. I may be prejudiced - I love most Italian wines! But I think I'm just managing to be impartial. Un ottimo vino bianco!

The real thing!

A great white wine - at last! I was given a bottle as a Christmas present. I can even claim that I have visited the town of Collecorvino during my trips to Abruzzo - which added to my satisfaction in drinking this outstanding wine.
It had that extra 'something' which all good wines should have.
As long as you like it dry and Italian, then you cannot go wrong if you order this beautiful tasting white wine. Don'y just take my word for it!
