It took just over 20 years for pecorino to revolutionize and redesign the wine platform of the white grapes of Central Italy, especially in two regions, Marche and Abruzzo. Beyond the futile quarrel about which of the two territories was the first to have rediscovered the grape, what is certain is that this variety gives some of its best expressions when it breathes the air of the mountains, or, at least, when the areas in which it is planted can benefit from cool pedoclimatic conditions. Structure and fullness are two of its main characteristics: only those who are able to tame them can yield wines that add finesse, depth and three-dimensionality to all this. We introduce two examples below.
