Pecorino Pescaresi Trabochetto

Pecorino Pescaresi Trabochetto

Ref: A102315

Talamonti, Loreto Aprutino, Pescara, Abruzzo

A lovely soft rounded wine with a good weight on the palate and a lovely long slightly herby finish. Abv 13%

The Talamonti winery was started in 2001 to exploit the unrealised potential of the Abruzzo region and has been very successful in doing so. The Pecorino grape has been around for many years but only recently has it been revived and developed into a wine of significance.

100% Pecorino from vineyards near the village of Loreto Aprutino in the province of Pescara in Abruzzo where the vines have an average age of 7 years. After a soft pressing there is a maceration for 6 hours at 8.0C. This is followed by a 12 day fermentation in stainless steel vats. There is no malolactic fermentation. It is aged for 6 months in stainless steel vats until bottling in March.

The name of the wine, Trabocchetto, does not refer to a medieval war machine but to a local fishing device consisting of a wooden platform attached to rocks with long arms stretching into the air with a large fishing net at the end - although it would certainly have resembled a medieval trebuchet.

This recently re-discovered grape variety shows the depth and diversity of Italy’s vines and wines. A great little number.

Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 2014, Jean-Marc Morey
A fantastic white Burgundy from Jean-Marc Morey, Côte de Beaune, which exhibits a purity of rich fruit (coupled with a mouth-tingling freshness) that is rare to find.

Vacqueyras Cuve Doucinello 2011
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.
