Appellation: Offida Pecorino DOCG
Grape variety: 100% Pecorino
Winemaking: cryomaceration of the skins, softly pressed and cold decanting of the must. Alcoholic fermentation at 15°C. Refined thanks to batonage on the fine lees.
Wine Tasting: Intense straw yellow colour. Defined varietal scents can be perceived together with olfactory sensations of ripe fruit and yellow flowers. To the taste it's warm, very fresh, sapid. A wine with a notable structure.
“Not to be the first to see something new, but to see the old as new, what is ancestrally known and that is seen and dismissed by all distinguishes the truly original minds.” [“Human, all too human” – F.W. Nietzsche] With this thought, the German philosopher seems to summarise the foresight of Piceno's winemakers in deciding to give new life to a vine unjustly left behind at the end of the 1900s.
