More about this wine from Abruzzo, Italy
Pecorino is quite an old grape but is just recently coming into fashion as a grape that stands on its own instead of being included in Italian table wines or blends. But what came first — the cheese or the grape? The word Pecorino actually comes from the sheep that have been herded in this part of Italy since ancient times. Shocking! The vino does pair well with its cheese namesake.

The juice is a luxurious, bright straw color and has a delightful muscularity on the palate. This density takes you on a ride through pear and apple orchards that ends with a welcoming salty, lemon zest. This bottle is a perfect white wine for these cold and lazy winter Saturdays when you don't want to go outside and a comforter fortress on the sofa is the perfect place to be all day long.
