Niro Pecorino Terre di Chieti 2016 is a White Wine made from 100% Pecorino grapes. Pecorino - more than just cheese! This white grape is native to Italy and has named after the sheep ("Pecora" is the Italian word for "sheep") that always try to eat them when they ripen at the start of the harvest season. Many of the wines in this region date back to the Roman Empire, and this wine is a prime example of ancient winemaking traditions.
It has a pale straw color with a greenish tint. The bouquet is refreshing with sage and floral notes and a hint of tropicality. The palate is full-bodied with impressive structure, complexity, and a lingering minerally crisp finish.
This wine makes you want to dance in a sun-soaked room, with the windows open and the warm breeze pouring in. A salad of yellow apples and juicy, slightly bruised golden pears drizzled with honey. There's a crisp nose, with notes of cold morning sunshine.
Niro Pecorino is best to drink it while eating handmade pasta out on the terrace on a balmy night listening to Coldplay - The Scientist. It pairs well with their Roasted Sweet Potato with Chickpeas, Goat Cheese, and Coriander recipe. It makes an excellent aperitif when well chilled. Enjoy!
