Tasting Notes

Deeply-coloured red with aromas of violets and ripe red fruit. The palate is warm and generous with attractive black cherry fruit, wild plum, gentle tannins and good length.

Producer details

Rocco Pasetti's superbly sited 25 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. His range of impeccably made, fruit-rich wines combines warm and generous flavours with stylish, eye-catching presentation. The Vigna Corvino pair are modern and easy to drink, yet wines of real substance. The Contesa range, produced in tiny quantities from selected parcels of the best grapes on the estate, are bold, impressive versions of Abruzzo's local grapes, Montepulciano and the up-and-coming white variety Pecorino.

In the vineyard

The Montepulciano grapes are grown in the 9 hecatre Colle Caparrone vineyard, southeast facing and at 200m altitude.

In the winery

The grapes are harvested at the start of October. Then they're fermented in stainless steel at a controlled temperature of 26-28ºC for 2-3 weeks, with up to a week's maceration on the skins. After malolactic fermentation the wine is matured in oak for 6-8 months.

Food Recommendations

A proven match for quality pork and leek sausages, onion gravy and mash!
