More about this wine from Abruzzo, Italy
Pecorino - more than just cheese! This white grape is native to Italy and is named after the sheep (“pecora” is the Italian word for “sheep”) that always try to eat them when they ripen at the start of the harvest season. Many of the vines in this region date back to the Roman Empire and this wine is a prime example of ancient winemaking traditions.

This wine makes you want to dance in a sun soaked room, with the windows open and the warm breeze pouring in. A salad of yellow apples and juicy, slightly bruised golden pears drizzled with honey. There’s a crisp nose, with notes of cool morning sunshine. Yellow plums, sun dried apricots, white clean chalk and green tomatoes all swimming in a briny sea.
How to drink it

Eating...

Anything particularly creamy - like goat cheese - is going to make your mouth super happy after a sip of this acid-kick of a wine.

Try it with our Roasted Sweet Potato with Chickpeas, Goat Cheese and Coriander recipe.
