Pecorino Superiore Abruzzo, Fontefico

Pecorino Superiore Abruzzo, Fontefico

Made from 100% Pecorino, a variety that was near extinction until it was re-established in the 1980s; the grapes are grown in the Vigna Blanca Vineyard and are fermented and aged in stainless steel. This example is very typical of the variety, being highly concentrated, with plenty of alcohol backing up the fruit. On the nose, there are notes of balsam, chamomile and apple blossom; followed by citrus, such as grapefruit. The palate shows a savoury note, alongside exotic tropical fruit, such as mango and finally almond.
