Pecorino Colline Teatine Yare
Indicazione Geografica Tipica (IGT)
Vinified in French oak barrels of various capacities, Yare is a rich expression of the ancient Pecorino, a low-yield, early-ripening native variety which finds its ideal habitat in the cool and elevated hillsides of Il Feuduccio estate.
A limited production for a wine of great personality, from a careful clonal selection.
