Pecorino 'Vellodoro' 2018

Pecorino the grape, not the cheese! Ampelographers believe the grape's name stems from the Italian word pecora (sheep), because the local sheep would eat the ripe grapes. Originally from the Sibillini mountains in the Marche, it is also popular in neighbouring Abruzzo, however in the 1980's the grape had almost dissappeared due to its low production. Umani Ronchi began their Pecorino project in Abruzzo in 2005.

Vallodoro is aged in stainless steel for a few months, on its lees but without malolactic, to retain the grapes natural lemony freshness. A dry and crisp white that's just a little bit different and perfect if you're grilling some seafood.
