Description: Fresh bouquet, with notes of tropical fruit and pineapple combined with sage and acacia scents. Full-bodied, well-structured and long-persistent taste with mineral notes. Born in the Abruzzo, Niro represents the ancient winemaking traditions of a region where vines date back to the Roman Empire.

Production: Nestled between the Adriatic Sea to the east and the Apennines Mountains to the west, the areas of Vasto and Chieti offer the perfect climate for highlighting all the exceptional characteristics of Pecorino grape. When crafting Niro, only the best fruit is selected and vinified following traditional techniques forgotten by modern technology. After the harvest, grapes are gently pressed, and then undergo a cryo-maceration process at 41°F, where the skins remain in contact with the must to extract all aromatic characteristics from the grapes. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled tanks.

Food Combination: ideal with seafood, shellfish, row fish. hors d’ouevres, delicate first and second courses, white meats. Also excellent well-chilled as an aperitif.
