Tasting Notes

Pecorino is not only the name of a sheep's cheese in Italy, it's also the name of a native white grape that thrives in the Chieti area of Abruzzo.

Wines work well with their native cuisine but really anything seafood would make a remarkable match to this delicious bottle.

Fresh acidity is balanced out by a beautifully textured wine with notes of fresh yellow apples, under-ripe tropical fruit and fresh notes of mint.
