Zavatti Collezione Pecorino IGT
Pecorino IGT (Terre Di Chieti)
Grape Variety: 100% Pecorino
Sensory Profile: A rich straw yellow with greenish highlights. The bouquet is delicately floral, with accompanying notes of citrus and tropical fruit. A generous-sized palate offers rich, full flavours that are vibrant and crisp, and the long finish displays the classic note of almond.
Food Pairing: It is ideal paired with antipasti, fish dishes and sushi, vegetable soups, and lighter meats.
