Region: Atessa Val di Sangro region of Abruzzo
Blend: Pecorino (100%)
Unfined and unfiltered, there is no sulphur added at bottling.
Planted on clay based soils, these grapes are given some skin contact and fermented in neutral fibreglass tanks
Though your mind may immediately wander towards the cheese of the same name, Pecorino is a rarely seen white grape from Italy’s Adriatic coast.
Luca treats it lightly, with a short fermentation in fibreglass tanks preserving both flavour and freshness.
With no fining, filtration or added sulphur, this minerally white is bright, lively and lemony.
