Pecorino has become very fashionable, and is now one of Italy's fastest-growing white varieties - although most plantings are still mainly in its Abruzzo home. It's a perfect accompaniment to the fantastic seafood of the region.

Rocco Pasetti's superbly sited, 30-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. The wine shows a ripe, honeyed nose with aromas of white peach and citrus fruits, and subtle nutty, savoury notes. The palate is full and textured with pronounced minerality and delicate ripe fruit flavours leading to a long, spicy finish.Fermented in stainless steel to allow the full aromatic quality of the wine to present itself. Fans of Albarino will find much to enjoy here.
