Pecorino d'Abruzzo, Costa del Molina 2013

75cl Cantina Frentana Pecorino Italy > Abruzzo Crisp, fresh and zesty
An indigenous varietal rescued from the brink of extinction some years ago by a small group of growers in Italy’s Marches region. Pecorino is quite a full-bodied white with moderate acidity. It features flavours of ripe apple, citrus and honey with a marked vein of minerality and a nutty element.

Cantina Frentana differs from many producers on this list, in that it is a co-operative winery with 400 viticulturalist partners as opposed to a smaller, family-run affair.The winery has been described by Gambero Rosso as “an encouragement to all those regional co-operatives that have finally set their sights on quality” For 15 years quality has been the main goal of Carlo Romanelli and his team of manager, oenologist and viticulturist who oversee every aspect of production- from grape-growing to blending to bottling.
