Tasting Notes

“Merlettaie” means lace, and the name of this wine pays homage to the lace workers of Offida weave together the threads, with precise and quick movement of their fingers, hence the name. They are the last witnesses of a precious art of ancient origin... a similarity it shares with Pecorino, a noble Italic, austere, harsh and strong grape, 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. The decanted must is fermented in medium-sized oak barrels, and then aged for approximately 6 months on its lees. The finished wine is refined for 3 months in bottle prior to release. Vineyards lie in the towns of Offida and Acquaviva Picena, in Ascoli Piceno province at 280m ASL.
