Offida DOCG Pecorino "Il Montanaro"

Tasting

Pecorino is a grape that expresses its best side through ageing and Il Montanaro is the most authentic expression of it. Produced only in the best vintages, with selected and hand-picked grapes, it is vinified in small stainless steel tanks and aged in 5000 liters barrels for more than 1 year. It is lastly refined in bottles for about 6 months. In this Pecorino we experience exotic fruit notes evolving to more complex sensations like honey and vanilla. The high natural acidity of this Pecorino gives it a very good longevity.
