Caparrone Abruzzo Passerina

A taut, fresh and lightly floral white from Passerina, an indigenous variety from Italy’s Adriatic coast. Like the riper, fuller, hugely popular Pecorino, it’s a great accompaniment to the local seafood. Contesa, one of the grape’s pioneers in Abruzzo, make a taut, mineral style with vibrant citrus fruit. Well worth discovering.

Country: Italy

Product Type: Wine

Wine Colour: White

Grape: Other White Grapes

Volume: 75cl

Producer Profile

Rocco Pasetti’s superbly sited, 50 hectare, estate lies in the heart of the Collecorvino district in the hills northwest of Pescara, recognised as one of the best vineyard zones in Abruzzo.

Surrounding the winery, the south-facing slopes of clay-chalk soils, at around 250m altitude, are ideal for the cultivation of Montepulciano, with Pecorino grown on the lower slopes. The cellar was completed in 2004 – carved into the hillside. Rocco’s son, Franco Pasetti, is also a winemaker and now works alongside him at the estate.
