Contesa Pecorino 2014 IGT Colline Pescaresi


    I love the freshness of this wine - it really zips across the mouth encouraging you to have more. This really is a grape variety on the comeback trail and is an adventurous alternative to more mainstream varieties.

  • 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.

  • Enjoy

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