Cococciola

A rare native cultivar from Abruzzo
ImageDear readers and friends, just for a change today I would like to talk about Abruzzo and, in particular, a white grape variety/wine with an unusual and amusing name, the “versatile” Cococciola. This is a rare cultivar native of Abruzzo that dates back to ancient times, and which has recently been granted new recognition. Cococciola vines have their best location in the province of Chieti. Until a few years ago, it was used as a blend variety to give freshness and acidity to other types, now however it is increasingly used to produce single variety wine, especially the Colline Teatine and Terre di Chieti IGT (typical geographic indication) wines. The marked and pleasant acidity of these grapes has led a few cellars to attempt producing sparkling wine with both the Charmat-Martinotti Method and the Classic Method using pure Cococciola wine, or blended with other local varieties, following the personal wine production philosophy of each company.
TheImage wine has a bright straw yellow colour, with an attractive bouquet of delicate grassy notes on a distinct clear citrus background, a marked smooth flavour and a light almond final note.
An original, unusual and unique wine that I recommend trying as an aperitif, or served with fish hors d’oeuvres, entrees that are not too spicy or elaborate, and it is excellent with steamed freshly caught fish.
Remember that the charm of local varieties comes from their unique bond with their land … which does not necessarily mean “excellence”. Uniqueness may also be pleasant simplicity, and that is the case of Cococciola, which is not suitable for intense evolution and refining, but over the years has gained an undisputed dignity. Chapeau!!
