Why we love it
This Cococciola wine is produced with cococciola grapes cultivated with the traditional pergola system, harvested in September and fermented in stainless steel drums. The result is a wine with a straw yellow color with green highlights. It has an intense and long-lasting taste with hints of citrus. In the mouth it is fruity, persistent, medium-bodied wine.
This cococciola is perfect as an aperitif or for fish or cheese based dishes.
The artisan who made it

Founded in the late 1950's, the Ciavolich winery is now jointly run by wife and husband Chiara and Gianluca.

I was attracted to the Italyabroad site by the unusual wines on offer. Having never heard of the grape variety Cococciola I had no high expectations so what a surprise when tasting it that I found a stunning wine worthy of a wider audience. A yellowish white colour with a soft straw nose and melon flavours with a light spicy acidity that was balanced and rounded on the palate. The acidity cutting through the creamy sauce that we had with fish but also lovely to drink on its own.
