Pecorino

Sharing its name with an equally famous and toothsome cheese, Pecorno is an Italian white grape that comes from the Marché region on the eastern side of Italy. The name comes from the Italian for ‘sheep’, possibly because its bunches look somewhat like the tails of local sheep, with a russet tinge when ripe. In style the wine is dry, full-flavoured with lovely balance from a taut, lemony finish, although the core is often soft with a ripe, cooked apple note. Currently it is becoming more popular so you may come across it more often.
