Pecorino Italo Pietrantonj 2007

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

From the oldest winery in Abruzzi comes this 100% Pecorino, fermented and aged in 1500-hectoliter old oak barrels (as oak barrels go, this is massive.) This unique, dry white wine offers coppery, citrusy, slightly oxidized notes on the nose and a concentrated, balanced palate. The slightly oxidized aromas are the result of the sheer difficulty of keeping such a large oak barrel topped up with wine. This is a great food wine that truly comes alive at the table.

From the oldest winery in Abruzzi comes the 100% Pecorino fermented and aged in 1500 hectoliter old oak barrels (in the grand scheme of things, this is a massive oak barrel.) The wine is unique in character, offering coppery, citrus-y, and slightly oxidized notes on the nose and a concentrated, balanced palate. The slightly oxidized notes are the result of the sheer difficulty of keeping such a large oak barrel topped up with wine. A great food wine that truly comes alive at the table.
