Barone di Valforte Pecorino 2022

Abruzzo, ItalyThe Sorricchio family has owned the baronial fief of Valforte since the 13th Century. The vineyard lies within the DOCG Colline Teramane area, but the pecorino grape is the star. The Pecorino takes its name from the Italian word for sheep, Pecora, that feed off the golden grapes. The aromas are intoxicating, mixing wild honey and citrus with almonds, pears, and mineral undersides. In BC, this is a terrific mussel wine, or you could serve it with a piece of aged pecorino cheese or roasted turkey. I love the super value here.Tasted: 03 November 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
