Abruzzo of Pescara: the cheese cellar Fullbacks

A native grape between Majella and Gran Sasso the natural landscape that lies ahead before arriving in the cellar is wonderful. We are in Abruzzo, in the Gorges of peoples in the province of Pescara and its namesake River. It is an area with predominantly agricultural economy. In addition to the wines, Tocco da Casauria is also famous for its olive oil industry products are recognised as DOP. Here, among the agricultural excellence, is also a famous native vine, rediscovered and brought back again a few years ago, the pecorino. The origin of this grape variety is more related to the Marche region bordered to the North; Nevertheless, in Abruzzo there were lucky experiments in the late 20th century that gave good results. Also, lucky enough to find this variety almost intact after attacks of phylloxera at the end of the 800 and the beginning of the 900, gave a thrust to its vinification. The Cellar wine grape grown to produce full-backs in purity with a protected designation of origin. The wine has deep acidity; produced and aged briefly in steel, allows easy combinations for its vivacity of flavour and freshness. Personally, I paired this wine to pizza. Though the classic combination and more usual would be what they would have approached the Goblet of wine to a seafood appetizer or a structured little pasta dish preparation, always fish. The floral notes coupled with particularly long taste of white fruits give the palate that typical brightness of wines to be drunk young, characteristic of our Italian regions.
