AMANTA, Pecorino

White wine | Masseria del Sud, Terre di Chieti IGP

Too good for the sheep!
This white wine offers a fruity nose, with citrus notes combined with nuances of white peach and papaya. On the palate it displays a beautiful presence, while remaining very refreshing. Ideal with fatty fish, and expressive hard cheeses like… Pecorino! Logic for this sheep's milk cheese whose name means "little sheep". A name which also designates the grape variety at the origin of this wine, because its grape was the favorite delicacy of the sheep led to the pastures at lower altitude.

Masseria del Sud

Masseria del Sud

Created in 2010 by a group of wine lovers, this beautiful modern winery is located in Abruzzo, in the heart of the Byzantine town of Crecchio, dominated by a medieval castle. The vineyards, close to the Gran Sasso massif, spread out over the hills of the province of Chieti. They are grown with the greatest respect for the environment. By their exposure and their altitude, the vines here take full advantage of the proximity of the sea and the mountains, which allows the birth of robust wines reflecting all the typicity of their terroir.
