Feudi Bizantini is a young project founded by a group of wine lovers whom have joined their efforts to produce wines that show the best of the Abruzzo region. Here, all their wines show individual personality and are really approachable from the moment you open them.
The Pecorino grape is a legendary story of a variety that was literally brought back from the brink of extinction. Elegant and rigorous. It is a benchmark wine that embodies power and smoothness. It is one of Abruzzo’s top white wines.
So this is how it should be. Kaffir lime leaf, grapefruit pith and tinned pineapple, with lots of white florals on the nose. It's waxy and bright on the palate, without a hint of oil or too much ripeness. That classic central-Italian bitterness and a lick of salt finish up. This is tight, classy pecorino and definitely worth a look.
