Pecorino Colline Teatine Feuduccio IGT

This ancient Abruzzese grape is now enjoying a well-deserved renaissance. The Lamaletto family has contributed to that, beginning clonal selection in 1997. After their careful research, they finally released their first vintage in 2005. Pecorino generally produces average yields and is very versatile grape but Il Feuduccio’s cool, elevated hillside vineyards are ideal for its cultivation. Fresh and elegant with fruity aromas coupled with licorice and honey. Very food and occasion friendly. An excellent accompaniment to seafood.
