Why we love it
Pecorino is a white grape that in the last few years has seen a renaissance, initially forgotten and left to rot on the vines or used in blends, now in fashion and widely cultivated in Abruzzo and Marche and Latium. In Abruzzo, the Pecorino has almost replaced the Trebbiano d'Abruzzo as the region flagship white wine.
This is a single vineyard Pecorino, made from manually harvested grapes from the oldest vines located on the hills facing the Adriatic sea, this wine is a step above the Pecorino Terrana. This Pecorino has a complex nose, whilst vibrant, elegant and delicate on the palate; lively, crispy and with a mineral finish. This Pecorino perfectly matches pasta dishes, white meat and medium matured cheeses
