Nerie – Pecorino Abruzzo D.O.C. 2019 - Villese
The name "Nerie" is linked to the name of a valiant Etruscan leader. In the archaeological excavations carried out in Villalfonsina in 1914, many artifacts were found that highlight the presence in the 6th-5th century BC of trade with the Etruscan area. Among others, bronze statuettes depicting a knight on horseback and a red impasto olla bearing the silhouette of the same knight and the inscription “ne” (probable abbreviation of the individual name Nerie). The label of our “Nerie” is inspired by a bronze disc with the aforementioned rider on horseback in relief. The wine shows a deep straw yellow color with golden hues and greenish reflections. Floral, aromatic, very pleasant on the palate, it is full-bodied, structured, persistent and with excellent freshness due to the consistent acid structure of the grape.
