Pecorino (Organic) IGT Terre di Chieti 2014

75cl Cantina Frentana Pecorino, Italy > Abruzzo Fruit driven, smooth and dry
Frentana’s Organic Pecorino is another standout wine. The mouth-watering acidity lends itself well to Italian dishes with a cream or olive oil based sauce.

 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.

"Refreshing acidity and attractive almond nutty flavours and finish. Enjoy with Roast chicken and a walnut and thyme stuffing."
