This biodynamic Italian white wine has a bright gold in colour in the glass and an aromatic nose. A soft and pleasant wine with aromas of citrus, ripe pear, peach and orange blossom. The palate is clean and rich with a pleasing mineral complexity and a long finish. Not to be confused with the cheese, the Pecorino grape takes its name from the Italian word ‘pecora’ meaning sheep. This is due to the fact that local sheep in the region often eat the grapes whilst walking through the vineyards.
Partner with river fish, risottos, chicken dishes and vegetables.
Made by Cantina Orsogna which is an award-winning Abruzzo cooperative specialising in indigenous grape varieties, such as the Pecorino used in this wine. They are committed to the biodynamic principles, certifying wine to Demeter standards, which means the land is seen hollistically as part of the planet and solar system - the vineyard isn’t just an isolated piece of land, engineered for the sole purpose of growing grapes.
The winery supports the activities of the WWF LIFE Euroturtles project to protect turtles in the Mediterranean. The aim of the project is to improve the conservation status of the EU populations of two sea turtle priority species, the loggerhead turtle Caretta Caretta and the green turtle Chelonia Mydas.
