Don’t be sheepish, get stuck in

Aromas of pear, sage and a good balanced acidity add up to a strong but fresh, pleasant taste

Description

If you’ve got a bit of a cheese fetish, you can’t beat this wine that shares its name with the famous formaggio. Unlike the cheese, we promise this wine isn’t made from sheep’s milk. The Pecorino grape has been growing in Abruzzo for millennia – and the lucky sheep in the area used to nibble on the grapes, hence the name.

Goes wonderfully with chicken, smoked or oily fish and, of course, cheese. Why not try a lump of Pecorino with a glass of… Pecorino?

About the producer

Cantina San Giacomo is a wine co-operative in Abruzzo with around 300 members, each of whom harvest their grapes and bring them to be pressed at the winery. As well as making minimal use of pesticides – the water courses running through the vineyard are so clean they are populated by rare river crabs – the Cantina also produces all its electricity from on-site solar panels.

  1. Rated 4 out of 5

    Fresh and fruity – I thoroughly enjoyed this wine and was pleasantly surprised that it maintained it’s great flavour, unlike most boxed wines!

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Really lovely fresh easy drinking white wine, perfect for those warmer summer days. There was a nice flavour to it, which I couldn’t quite put my finger on but apparently pecorino is meant to be slightly “nutty” so I suspect that is what it was! Would definitely buy it again.
