Botte de Conti Pecorino, Terre di Chieti

A light, elegant Italian white from Lidl

2018 Botte de Conti, Pecorino, Terre di Chieti

Pecorino is the grape here (not to be confused with the cheese of the same name) and Terre di Chieti is the region; it is in Abruzzo, just outside Rome.

This is a delicious classic Italian white to be consumed young; light, lemony and refreshing. It is also quite a bargain even at its full price of £5.49.

I managed to buy during it one of Lidl's regular promotional discounts where it was reduced to just £3.49. At this price, you'd be mad not to buy as much of this as you can carry home.

2018 Botte de Conti Pecorino Terre di Chieti, 12%vol, (£5.75, Lidl) citrus, apple, stone fruits and tropical fruit with some green herbs, minerality and a touch of spice. Very adept and well-made.

Improves with some aeration.

Very pleasant and Very Good Value.

Drink as an aperitif in the garden or match with with seafood, soft cheeses, white fish or plain roast pork.

It also gets a recommendation from Helen McGinn on Saturday Kitchen to match with carbonara.
