I love this wine.  It is fun, and delicious, for the money it is a lot of wine.  Pecorino is probably the most interesting white grape, generally speaking, in the Abruzzo region.  It is naturally low yielding, higher in acidity and accumulates good sugars, making for a naturally very balanced and flavorful wine.  Not to knock trebbiano, but not all trebbiano are created equal.  Trebbiano plantings vastly outnumber Pecorino.  The vast majority of the Trebbiano is not the ideal variant of Trebbiano or is planted/cropped in a way to bring out the best of Trebbiano, which takes a lot of work and the right site to coax out!  (FWIW the Trebbiano here is supposed to be excellent, but not in stock at the moment!)

Varietal: 100% Pecorino
Altitude: 300 meters a.s.l., east/northeast exposure
Soil Composition: Clay-limestone on a sandy sublayer
Fermentations: 100% steel, with temperature control.  6 months “sur lies” in steel tanks

My Tasting Notes:  Kind of like Chenin and Viognier had a baby...Med yellow with flecks of green colors.  Fresh and med+ on the nose, peach and orange citrus: mandarin, tangerine, and clementine, orange blossoms add to the aromatic generosity.  The palate is med/med+ across the board, a lot of flavor density and complexity, med+ on the fresh finish. This packs a lot of aroma and flavor, it's so much fun to drink!  We had this with a charcuterie platter on Saturday with some friends and everybody loved it and the pairing!

The 2021 Pecorino Giocheremo Con i Fiori is finessed and floral with an airy mix of dusty yellow flowers, hints of kiwi, honeydew melon and wet stone. There’s a gorgeous inner sweetness here that’s perfectly offset by a stimulating blend of zesty acidity and sour green citrus. The 2021 sizzles upon the palate, tapering off long and lively with a lemony concentration that lingers. The Giocheremo con i Fiori is full of balanced pleasure; and while it comes across as ripe on the palate, the residual sugar here is just .1 grams per liter. Killer juice. - Eric Guido
