Collfefriso Pecorino “Vignaquadra”
WHY WE LOVE IT
- Pecorino is a very old indigenous Italian varietal currently making a comeback, known for its ability to thrive at higher altitudes and for its great structure.
- There’s high acidity, that allows it to gain complexity over time.
Varietal Composition: 100% Pecorino
Elaboration: Maceration at low temperature upon grapes removal from the stalks and controlled temperature alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel.
Tasting Notes: Straw-like yellow color with gold reflections.The bouquet is fragrant with ripe peach, banana and green tea. A well balanced and lasting finish.
Third-generation winemakers Amedeo De Luca and Antonio Patricelli created the Collefrisio winery in 2004 in the hills of Frisa, Chieti Province, in Italy’s Abruzzo region. The estate is based on the hilltop holdings they acquired from the Frisio family (hence the name “Collefrisio”). Vineyard holdings are 35 hectares in total, and all farming is organic. We first came to Amedeo and Antonio for their very fine Montepulciano, and have expanded our stateside selection into white varietals over the last year.
