About This Wine
Like the sheep cheese of the same name, Pecorino is known as the 'grape of the sheep' due to the vine's traditional plantings in sheep grazing areas. Thought to be extinct in the middle of the last century, the variety has seen a huge revival since the 1980s.
Pretty aromas of honeysuckle, citrus, and little bit of a herbal note. The medium-bodied wine tastes fresh with crisp acidity and a lively mouthfeel. It has similar flavours to the nose although there is also a lovely mineral overlay.
Delicately delicious, this is sheepishly good…
About Umani Ronchi
Umani Ronchi is owned by the Bianchi-Bernetti family, who since 1957 have been tending their vines across the Abruzzo and Marche.
They farm their vineyards organically, for technical rather than ideological reasons, and sustainability is at their core: lighter glass bottles with a lower impact in terms of CO2 emissions, and synthetic cane sugar corks that are 100% recyclable.
