This product has a number of really powerful values that are challenging to add up since they each have a unique character that may be compared to that of a genuine symphony.
The uniqueness of pecorino as a vine comes first, followed by the production chain, which supports the company’s potential, and last but not least, its superb all-around expressive quality.
This is an exceptional pecorino, with a rich and broad aroma, a fresh amplitude of fruit and spices, that is welcoming and extremely harmonic.
It has an all-encompassing taste and a minerality on the palate that is amply underlined by the body. The finish is quite lengthy, and the flavor is round and balanced.
We experimented with a risotto with cuttlefish ink because we wanted to see how it would work together, and it really exhibited its surprise structure as a true Superiore, not only in the nomenclature.
We are confident that this vine, skilfully worked, can really be a true standard-bearer of the quality of this extraordinary region.
