Pecorino Colli Aprutini IGT

Our new quest was to make wine with Pecorino grapes! The 2020 harvest brought Le Murate Pecorino Colli Aprutini.
Wine cannot be made without some forethought and Le Murate Pecorino is the result of a precise mission to produce a wine that would speak eloquently of the nature of the vine. Here we have a wine that unfolds specific aromatic nuances but also a vibrant, stylish character.

The fermentation solution chosen aims precisely to extract the aromatic traits and striking structure from the skins. We’re delighted with the result. Le Murate Pecorino is a winner with its feisty acid backbone and ample but restrained structure. A linear wine that wagers on its confident nose notes to reveal its true character.
