Wine Profile
Wine Profile / Tasting Notes
Deep straw yellow color. On the nose the wine is very intense and persistent, with grassy and hawthorn blossoms aromas, and a touch of vanilla perfume. Fresh and sapid, agreeable and soft to the palate.
Production Notes
The decanted must fermented in medium-sized oak barrels; where the wine is aged for approx 6 months with the lees of fermentation.
Winemaker Notes
The lace workers of Offida weave together the threads, with precise and quick movement of their fingers. They are the last witnesses of a precious art of ancient origin…so it is the origin of Pecorino, a noble Italic, austere, harsh and strong grape’s variety, which has been confined for decades onto the bare and steep slopes of the Piceno Apennines. A few wine growers have recently rediscovered this wine thanks to their love and enthusiasm. Pecorino is rare, precious and able to exhale a strong personality recalling ethereal and persistent sensations, year after year. Its personality and strength are harmonically enhanced by fermentation in “noble” wood, a perfect example of the past combined with a new oenological knowledge.
Food & Wine Pairing
Ideal as an aperitif or pairing with seafood, vegetarian dishes, and light, creamy sauces, Ciù Ciù Merlettaie Offida DOCG Pecorino is a must-try for white wine lovers and a quintessential example of Italy's rich wine culture.
