Description

There’s nothing cheesy about this crisp, fresh white with balanced acidity and aromas of pear and sage.

About this wine

If you’ve got a bit of a cheese fetish, you can’t beat this wine that shares its name with the famous formaggio. The Pecorino grape has been growing in Abruzzo for millennia – and the lucky sheep (‘pecora’ in Italian) in the area used to nibble on the grapes, hence the name.

Meet the producer

The Casimirri family have lovingly tended their 49 acres of vines and olive groves in the Abruzzo region for more than half a century. The grapes are hand tended and harvested by local villagers in the cooler hours of the day, then spirited off to the winery as quickly as possible to achieve the distinctive fresh taste for which the Casimirris' wines are held in such high regard in the region.
