The pecorino by Tenuta Ulisse sparkles with a bright yellow and greenish shimmer in the glass. This Italian white wine flatters the nose with a fruity bouquet. Delicious and sweet aromas of candied citrus fruits, white peach, pineapple and papaya unfold. These refreshing notes are rounded off by a subtle saline nuance.
This refreshing pecorino from Italy is present on the palate with an invigorating acidity and unfolds a great structure with lots of extract. The long-lasting reverberation of this wine is melting with balsamic notes.
Vinification of the Pecorino Terre di Chieti of Ulisse
The ULISSE line consists of grape varietal wines, which impressively prove what fantastic aromas and tastes arise when native grape varieties grow on the soil that is ideal for them. The origin of the pecorino grapes is uncertain, but they have been cultivated for centuries in the central regions of Italy, such as Abruzzo. The selective hand-picking takes place in 10 kilogram containers, cooled by dry ice, the grapes reach the winery undamaged. There they are selected again to ensure an absolutely healthy reading.The
grapes are cooled to -5°C by nitrogen within 3 minutes. This breaks down the cell structure and promotes extraction, which explains the intense, fascinating fresh-fruity aroma of this wine. The fermentation takes place temperature-controlled in stainless steel tanks with subsequent ageing in the same for a period of 3 months.
