The Pecorino varietal is a white skinned grape from the Abruzzo region. It has been cultivated in the best vineyard locations for over many centuries.
From within the whole of the province of the City of Chieti.
Traditional vinifi cation using the reduction technique, this starting right from the harvest; after pressing then follows a maceration of at least four hours, and after this a further soft pressing, cooling of the must and a static cleaning. The fermentation process is now started under controlled temperature for a period of circa ten days after which a cooling of the fresh wine is practiced. It is then transferred for a long contact with selected yeasts before being bottled.
