2016 Pasetti Bianco Terre Aquilane Testarossa
$43.00

Bright straw yellow wine. Its bouquet explodes with citrus and yellow pulp fruit aromas, with gentle nuances of flint. This is a wine of excellent saltiness and minerality. The mark of clean freshness and acidity completes itself with a good body and persistence, a great roundness and a slightly almondy aftertaste.

The 5-generations long history of the Pasetti Winery starts in the Bourbon era and reaches the present day. The turning point for the winery came in the 60’, with the start of the vinification on its own: the result is extremely positive and the company manages to make a name for itself, registering a significant growth of customers and turnover.

In the 80’s, then, Mimmo Pasetti (who already began studying enology) gave the company the boost to dare bottling its Montepucliano: he did that to celebrate the birth of his firstborn Francesca, who was redhaired just like Mimmo’s grandmother Donna Rachele.

Thus was born the Testarossa (which literally means “Red Head”), flagship of the Winery and the Pasetti Family, that since 5 generations carries on the viticulture work with the same passion and determination. Mimmo Pasetti, nowadays, manages the company and is a visionary entrepreneur: his project began at the dawn of the new millennium, when he started acquiring more and more fields in Pescosansonesco (Gran Sasso and Monti Della Laga National Park).

The terroir of Pescosansonesco, clay-calcareous and rich in skeleton, is perfect for the Montepulciano d ’Abruzzo cultivation; moreover, the important temperature range between day and night of this 550 m.a.s.l. place ensures that the win will have a sensory profile of high quality and elegance. Thus began the transformation process from the coastal part of Abruzzo to the mountain area, which will continue with the acquisition of Capistrano, Castiglione a Casauria and Often: in such way, Pasetti Winery is the only company in Italy allowed to exhibit the National Park logo in the back of its bottles.

Today Mimmo manages the company along with his 3 sons, everyone with a defined and different role: Francesca Rachele is in charge of the administration, Massimo of the export and international visibility and Davide, who’s an oenologist, is in charge of the wine production.

Pairing Suggestions: Gastronomic matching – It is recommended with structured and perfumed dishes such as fish cooked with aromatic herbs, spiced courses, white meat, herbal and seasoned cheeses.

Maturation: Ageing In stainless steel vats on its fine lees and 6 months in the bottle.
