Aromas of strawberries and cherry fruit, with some savoury herbal notes. These juicy, ripe bitter cherry flavours follow through to a juicy, mouth-watering, yet dry finish.
Rocco Pasetti’s 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 Vigna Corvino pair 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 Abruzzo’s local grapes, Montepulciano and the up-and-coming white variety Pecorino.
