CONTESA PECORINO COLLINE PESCARESI IGT
Rocco Pasettis superbly sited 25 hectare estate lies in the heart of the Collecorvino district in the hills northwest of Pescara, recognised as one of the best vineyard zones in Abruzzo. His range of impeccably made, fruit-rich wines combines warm and generous flavours with stylish, eye-catching presentation. The Caparrone wines are modern and easy to drink, yet wines of real substance. The Contesa range, produced in tiny quantities from selected parcels of the best grapes on the estate, are bold, impressive versions of Abruzzos local grapes, Montepulciano and the up-and-coming white variety Pecorino.
Delicate floral, stone fruit and citrus aromas lead on to a palate with fresh peach notes backed by a textural minerality, nutty characters, and crisp acidity.
Try with grilled fish or chichen dishes with roast peppers.
