Bright straw. A concentrated nose of apricot blossom, lemongrass, acacia, sea spray and yellow apple. Rounded in the mouth, the wine repeats the floral notes on the palate but adds in white peach and a bit of lemon zest, with a lingering melon note. The bright acid keeps the wine fresh and persistent while the wine remains medium-bodied throughout. The pecorino is hand-harvested and destemmed with a gentle bladder press to tank. A small percentage of the skins were preserved and tossed back atop the juice and allowed to macerate for seven hours prior to being drained off. Fermentation occurred naturally and after four weeks in tank the wine is racked off of the gross lees and rests for another six months prior to bottling. Pecorino is a very old grape but was only recently rediscovered and used for monovarietal wines. Named for the ancient tradition of herding sheep (Pecora is the Italian word for sheep), the Pecorino grape is one of the first to ripen and sheep are attracted to the fruit. Less than one mile from the cliffs descending into the Adriatic Sea sits a vineyard perched on a steep slope planted with Montepulciano and Pecorino.
