Pecorino, or “sheep’s grape” owes its name to the link with lands dedicated to pastoralism and an ancient white grape variety native to central Italy. We propose a diverse selection, together with… what else? Pecorino cheeses from our Slow Food Presidia! 

We’ll taste the following wines: from the Marche, Falerio Pecorino Onirocep ’19 Pantaleone and Offida Pecorino Réve ’17 Velenosi; from Abruzzo, Pecorino Chiamami Quando Piove ’19 Valori, Pecorino Giulia ’18 Cataldi Madonna and Pecorino ’19 Cirelli

Together with these cheeses: 

From Abruzzo, Farindola Pecorino produced using pig rennet – unique in Italy and perhaps the world – which gives it a special sensory profile; Castel del Monte Canestrato from the pastures of Gran Sasso, where over 300 plant essences have been counted, an incredible number! From the Marche we have Sibillini Mountains Pecorino made with raw milk, half-cooked and aged naturally. Then, from Campania, Carmasciano Pecorino, which comes from a four-kilometer pasture in the Ansanto Valley of the Irpinia highlands.
