La Valentina 2016 (Italy: Abruzzo)

Name La Valentina 2016
Varietal Pecorino Bianco (IGT)
Region Italy: Abruzzo
Notes "Vivid straw-yellow. Lemon and spices on the nose, but also a strong note of banana. Bright, fresh and easygoing on the palate, offering pear, banana and ripe peach flavors. Finishes long with a slight phenolic edge but also good sweetness of fruit. Well-made in a tough year, but not the most characteristic example of Pecorino wine you’ll ever drink, and thus I have lowered my score accordingly." (Vinous)
