Contesa Caparrone Abruzzo Passerina

£9.99 £10.99

The native Italian Passerina grape is mostly found near the Adriatic coast of central Italy, where it is used to produce both still and sparkling wines with pronounced citrus aromas. The name comes from 'Passero' (sparrow) - as they are apparently fond of these grapes when ripe!

This Italian white wine has a fresh and citrusy nose with aromas of lemon zest and grapefruit. The palate has ripe stone fruit characters balanced by zesty acidity - giving an appealing texture and finish.
