La Borgata offers a range of wine from central Italy's local, indigenous grapes. Using a modern approach to winemaking ensures the highest quality of these wines, which are generally soft and fruity with a perfect balance.

Tasting Notes

Straw-yellow in colour, this exciting wine features notes of elder and tropical fruit. Fresh and delicate on the palate, with a good acidity and a long
lasting finish.

 

Harvest

The grapes are selected from vineyards in the hills of Pescara and the valleys of Abruzzo. Thanks to the big temperature differences between day and night, the climate is ideal for quality wines such as Pecorino. All grapes are picked by hand in mid-September.

Vinification

After de-stemming the grapes are soft pressed in a pneumatic press. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature not exceeding 18°C and lasts about 3 weeks. The first racking takes place after fermentation is complete. The wine is then left on the fine lees for several months to add complexity. The wine is carefully managed to avoid malolactic fermentation and preserve a good level of acidity.
