Victoria Moore, writing for the Daily Telegraph (16th Sept ’17), has selected Contesa’s Caparrone Pecorino 2016 as one of her Wines of the Week!
“The joy of a refreshing Italian white. The grape variety here is pecorino, grown in Abruzzo; the taste is preserved lemons, grapefruit pith and bay, with citrus oil and roasted almond.”
Rocco Pasetti of Contesa, is one of Abruzzo’s winemaking pioneers, and his wines are unquestionably amongst the best in the region. Now working alongside his son Franco, also a winemaker, their portfolio includes the Caparrone range of characterful indigenous varieties.
