Zavatti Collezione Pecorino IGT

Pecorino IGT (Terre Di Chieti)

Zavatti Collezione

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.

Vinification: Gentle pressing of the clusters, cryomaceration on the skins to extract fruit aromas and varietal characteristics of the Pecorino grape, followed by static cold-settling of the must, then controlled-temperature fermentation and maturation in stainless steel.
