Producer: Poggio Anima
Grape(s): Pecorino, Chardonnay
Poggio Anima is a joint project between Toscana's Le Ragnaie, and one of their American importers to highlight different regions and indigenous grapes around Italy. Each cuvée in the colourful series is named for fantastic mythical beasts. This is a certified organic pét-nat of 85% Pecorino and 15% Chardonnay, from Vasto / Monteodorisio, in Abruzzo, and a site at 280m altitude. Pouring a lightly hazy, very pale hue, this is bright and lively with fragrant melon, pear, grapefruit pith on a juicy, medium-bodied palate. Lovely balance and ease to this charming pét-nat.
