This is a weighty, rich and zesty white wine and would be a delight for people who like their whites with a bit of body. Zesty, grapefruity and minerally, this would be enjoyed by someone who likes a Macon.
Pecorino is a long-forgotten grape variety, which is making a come-back. By the mid 20th century, Pecorino was thought to be extinct, however it was rediscovered and since the 1990s plantings have grown considerably. It is an early-ripening, thin skinned grape, native to Central Italy, where it produces fresh, crisp mineral-driven wines with floral notes. It produces high levels of natural sugars balanced by naturally high acidity.
The vineyards are cultivated organically; herbicides and pesticides are not used. The grapes are manually harvested.
