Pecorino is a light-skinned wine-grape variety used in Italy’s eastern coastal regions, notably Marche and Abruzzo. It is used to make dry, mineral-scented varietal wines under the Offida and Falerio DOC titles, but also works well as a blending component, most often alongside Passerina and Trebbiano. A classic Pecorino wine is straw-yellow in colour and has an elegantly floral bouquet of acacia and jasmine, sometimes spiced with a hint of liquorice.

Although Pecorino’s relatively low yields make it less popular among winegrowers than high-yielding Trebbiano, the variety’s complex aromatic profile and ability to ripen early have earned it a continued presence in the vineyards of central and eastern Italy.

The name Pecorino means literally ‘little sheep’, and has various folk etymologies. It is perhaps more commonly associated with Pecorino cheese (so called because it is made from the milk of ewes), which, co-incidentally, is a good food match for Pecorino wine.
