Vigneti Radica, Pecorino, Terre di Chieti IGT, Italy
White wine made of a rare and long-forgotten Abruzzo grape variety that is now being rediscovered, pecorino wine is strong yet delicate with notes of flowers, citrus fruits and exotic fruit. Lots of people ask – ‘Isn’t Pecorino a sheep’s milk cheese?’ Yes, it is the name the well-known Italian cheese, but it is also the name of a great grape variety that soon will be famous like the cheese. Older people say that the variety gets its name from the fact that the sheep (‘pecora’ in Italian) enjoy nibbling the leaves of this particular vine.
The wine is straw-yellow in colour with green highlights. A fruity aroma with citrus and exotic nuances blend in delicate notes of flowers. This is a well-bodied wine with good structure and a slightly mineral finish.
