About the Wine
This wonderful white wine by Torre dei Beati is made in Abruzzo. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark meaning you won't find it at multiple retailers. Available in 75cl bottles, imported by Torre dei Beati. Pecorino Abruzzo is an inviting wine, made from Fiano grapes. This cork closed wine is created with added sulphites. The wine is one of a growing number in our list that can be enjoyed by vegan drinkers. Delicious bright, herbal notes - excellent with light Mediterranean, salad and seafood dishes.
‘Torre dei Beati’ (Tower of the Blessed) hails from an image on a 14th century fresco, from the local church, providing inspiration to the team at Torre dei Beati who approach the production of their wine, from native grapes, with immense care and detail. Owners Adrianna and Fausto believe that it’s impossible to separate the quality of their wine from its natural heritage and converted the vineyard to produce organically farmed grapes when they took over; their first wines released in 2000.
From the cool northern regions to the sizzling south of Sicily, Italy is a kaleidoscope of colours, flavours, grapes and styles from regions such as Borolo to lesser-known Montefalco and Etna.Explore Italy
