Civitas Pecorino, 2018 (case of 12)



"This wine is dry and minerally, straw-yellow in colour and has an elegantly floral bouquet of acacia and Jasmine. Bright gold in colour with 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 orange blossom. In a rather lovely coincidence, it pairs very well with the soft Italian cheese of the same name.  “FREE DELIVERY IF YOU LIVE WITHIN 10 MILES OF THE WHALLEY WINE SHOP.

Winemakers note: This pecorino is certified ‘Demeter’ biodynamic, this means that the vineyard has been subjected only to completely natural processes. This charming but previously unfavoured grape variety was thought to be extinct. It was rescued after cuttings were taken in the 1980s. Now this grape is part of the new wave of increasingly popular varietal wines. It is most prolific in Marche, and is also quite widely planted now in other regions of Central Italy.
