Lively straw yellow in colour with green hues, this Pecorino displays delightful aromas of white stone fruit and pears on the nose, with hints of balsamic. On the palate, it shows excellent intensity and concentration, with a round body. It is wonderfully balanced, with both a soft texture and vibrant freshness on the finish.

Production Notes

Once the grapes arrived at the winery, they were gently crushed and destemmed. Pressing and cooling were carried out in a few seconds down to -1°C in an inert atmosphere. Static clarification of the must took place, followed by fermentation at 12°C in order to preserve the character of the fruit. 80% of the juice was fermented in stainless-steel tanks, the other 20% in 40-hectolitre oak barrels.

Producer Information

The Fantini group was founded in 1994 by Valentino Sciotti with the aim of producing top-quality wine from Abruzzo. The enterprise was so successful that the group expanded further south in Italy and its islands. Today the Fantini group includes Cantina Diomede, Gran Sasso, Vesevo, Vigneti del Salento, Vigneti del Vulture, Tufarello, Zabù and Cantina Atzei, among others. Acclaimed winemaker and consultant Alberto Antonini oversees production, ensuring these wines offer great quality, varietal character and value. Their elegant and striking packaging makes them stand out on the shelf or table.

Fantini is their flagship winery, producing wines from vineyards based in the northern part of Abruzzo, where ripeness and freshness combine in the wines. The Calalenta Pecorino is wonderfully balanced, with both a soft texture and vibrant freshness on the finish. Grapes for this hail from west and southwest-facing vineyards around the town of Ortona, on the Adriatic coast in Abruzzo, planted on calcareous clay soils.
