Offering complexity and textual character, the Pasetti family's Collecorvino estate presents Contesa Trebbiano d'Abruzzo from a single block of 25-year-old Trebbiano d'Abruzzo. This sustainably developed white is produced with low sulfur and zero fining, with only 3,000 bottles produced.
Pleasantly rustic but with youthful fruit too, hints of preserved lemons and aromas of woodsmoke, butterscotch and wild herbs. The palate starts fresh and taut giving way to a textural, gently nutty mid palate with depth and structure. A serious wine with a persistent, complex and savoury finish.
Pair Contesa Trebbiano d'Abruzzo with poultry, seafood, or light pasta dishes in tomato sauce for optimal flavour.

Vineyard and Winery
From a 1.8ha, 25 year old block of Trebbiano d'Abruzzo (a distinct variety to the ubiquitous Trebbiano Toscano) in Collecorvino. The vines are cultivated at high density, in clay soils at 250m altitude, with yields below 70 hl/ha. Harvested at the end of September, 10% of the crop is left to macerate, causing spontaneous fermentation on skins. After 5 days, the remaining grapes are gently pressed and added to this “Piede di lievito”. After a slow fermentation at 18-19C, lasting 4 weeks, the wine is decanted from skins and held on lees for 6 months in stainless steel. Bottling takes place with no fining, low suplhur (below 70 mg/ltr total) and only a coarse filtration
