Pecorino has become very fashionable, and is now one of Italy's fastest-growing white varieties - although most plantings are still mainly in its Abruzzo home. It's a perfect accompaniment to the fantastic seafood of the region.

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.

Tasting notes

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

Food match

Try with fish, seafood, white meat and cheese.

Vintage: 2019
