Pecorino

Region

DOC Abruzzo Pecorino

Winemaker notes

Pecorino from the Colline Pescaresi in Abruzzo is of the finest regional examples of the variety . The heavy clay soils and altitude provide a cooler microclimate that Pecorino prefers. The grape's naturally high acidity produces a finished wine with medium body, subtle herbal undertones and a crisp finish. A mild winter and early, warm spring resulted in an early bud break across much of the region. A late spring frost affected some vineyards reducing yields. Conditions through summer were more consistent, and the vintage overall was good both white and red varieties.

Viticultural Notes
