Collefrisio is a young, forward thinking company located in the Chieti province of Abruzzo where the temperature is warm during the day and cool in the evening. The estate's thirty-five hectares are divided into three distinct vineyards. At the Guiliano Teatino vineyard, Montepulciano and Pecorino grapes are grown in red clay soil in a microclimate determined by the mountains and the valley.
Ageing Potential: Drink Fresh
Tasting Note: Fresh white melon on the nose, with a wonderfully balanced palate of acidity and white stone fruit. A clean harmonious finish. Jancis Robinson describes it as 'characterful'. Pecorino is a specialty of Italy's east coast, Marches and Abruzzo.
