Contesa Pecorino 2013 IGT Colline Pescaresi

  • Origin

    Pecorino is an early ripening, thin-skinned grape, native to central parts of Italy. The bunches tend to be very triangular in shape, reminiscent of a sheep's head, said to be the reason for the grape's name. This great example is 30% oak fermented.

  • Taste

    Pale yellow, with a remarkably intense nose of citrus fruits, hints of hawthorn and orange blossom. Soft, clean, but persistent palate texture, with a pleasing mineral complexity.

  • Sweetness

    Dry 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Sweet
     
  • Enjoy

    Try with nutty cheeses, such as the wine's sheep's milk cheese namesake, or with simple cod dishes.

Perfect with Cheese Board

Special Distribution

Special distribution

We offer our whole range of fine wines online, including wines stored at our temperature controlled Fine Wine Centre in London. Wines labelled 'Special Distribution' are sent by courier from the Fine Wine Centre to your local Majestic before your delivery can be completed. This allows you to choose from a much greater range, but does mean delivery may take a few days longer than usual.
