Best Wines of Le Marche: Ciù Ciù Offida Pecorino DOCG Le Merlettaie
Share

The lace workers of Offida weave together the threads, with precise and quick movement of their fingers. They are the last witnesses of a precious art of ancient origin… so it is the origin of Pecorino, a noble Italic, austere, harsh and strong grape’s variety, which has been confined for decades onto the bare and steep slopes of the Piceno Apennines. A few wine growers have recently rediscovered this wine thanks to their love and enthusiasm. Pecorino is rare, precious and able to exhale a strong personality recalling ethereal and persistent sensations, year after year. Its personality and strength are harmonically enhanced by fermentation in “noble” wood, a perfect example of the past combined with a new oenological knowledge.

Straw yellow, crystal clear and consistent. The aroma has predominantly floral perfumes of acacia and hawthom:fruits of apple, peach and banana. To the taste it is warm, soft enogh and fresh. Full bodies, averagely persistent, with the end characterized by a floral return
