Pecorino is yet another deliciously mineral Italian white. Though always dry, the Pecorino grape’s naturally high acid delivers refreshing crispness even as high sugars allow roundness and weight. Localised to Marche and Abruzzo it bears no relation to the famous cheese, though perhaps because of the resulting renown and cute resonance (referring to sheep) the varietal name is marketed on wine labels. Light straw in colour but moderately expressive for an Italian white, Pecorino’s subtle florals and salty nuances make it an aperitif you might accidentally sniff and swirl a little more than some people think is reasonable.
