Newcomers Adriana Galasso and Fausto Albanesi have been running one of the smallest wineries in Abruzzo for a few years, producing just 60,000 bottles. Adriana, formerly a businesswoman and Fausto, retired computer scientist, run the inherited property with as much passion as competence. It was clear from the start that if they tackled this project, the path would not be the traditional one, and the ambition would be to achieve something extraordinary. The focus is on respect for nature and the sustainability of vine farming - not a matter of course in the large production areas of central and southern Italy, where the wine is still evaluated and traded according to alcohol degrees. Today, after a longer period of conversion of the vines to modern, organic viticulture, the “young” winemakers are enjoying increasing success, their wines have not only been noticed by us, but are also increasingly being noticed by wine critics. A wine that always captivates with its cheerful, delicately spicy aromas is pecorino, which also has a light and elegant dance effect on the palate. The Pecorino grape, which is hardly known outside Abruzzo, is characterized by its fresh, delicately fruity aromas, which are reminiscent of pears and white flowers. The start on the palate is soft, but minerality and refreshing acidity are quickly noticeable.
Goes well with aperitifs, antipasti, fish and charcuterie.
