Pecorino  is an indigenous white grape from Marche. Its origins are ancient but we know very little about them. It is common in the Piceno area and its particular name comes from the fact that the land was devoted in particular to raising sheeps ( pecora in italian). The Pecorino grape was recently rediscovered,  in the past was relegated to narrow areas due to ist reduced productivity. Only recently, some forward-thinking producers start to vinifcate it with excellent results obtaining wines of great structure and intensity.

The Pecorino grape is medium-low vigor and early maturing. It gives a straw yellow wine with green hitns when young. It displays the typical aromas of tropical fruit and white flowers, broom, acacia and jasmine. Fine and persistent.
