Pecorino is a very old indigenous Italian varietal currently making a comeback, appreciated for its ability to thrive at higher altitudes and for its great structure. There’s high acidity, plus the alcohol, that allows it to gain complexity over time. Like a red wine dressed up as a white. It is an early ripening variety that tends to naturally produce low yields. Peco means sheep in Italian, and may have been so named because grazing sheep liked to snack on these sweet berries.
