Gentle ripe fruit, unfettered by oak. As easy-going as you like. Sweet floral apples – a Golden Delicious and Red Delicious sort of vibe – with pear drops and melon and a hint of jasmine. It’s generously fruity but with a palate-cleansing minerality at the end, that ultimately makes it a very refreshing wine.

Tasting Notes

Pecorino, the grape, not the cheese, is enjoying a sort of celebrity status among Italian varieties at the moment. It'll never quite be a Madonna or George Clooney, but a minor speaking part in a Hollywood blockbuster is well within its reach. The growing popularity of this grape of La Marche (there were only 87ha in Italy in 2000; that number must have risen exponentially by now) comes down to its light, fruity, slightly mineral charm and its bevibilita - drinkability. Pecorinos are typically aged in steel tanks and made to be drunk young. This is a wine that is all about love and friends and family. It is meant to be enjoyed with your nearest and dearest, plenty of great food and a good old natter. Post a recent sojourn to Bocca di Lupo, I am even more Italy-obsessed than ever, so why not try this with a rich and buttery Saltimbocca with fresh summer greens and creamy mash. Or take some time out of your hectic schedule and make an asparagus risotto, with a dash of the wine itself and lashings of parmesan.

Press Note:

'Many new discoveries at Il Collettivo, Italian tasting in London yesterday. This is a 100% Pecorino from Marche region. Layers of flavour, nice weight and balance.'
