Wine Review: This golden yellow colored Pecorino opens with a pineapple and Anjou pear bouquet with hints of clover honey, jasmine, gardenia, and ginger. On the palate, the wine is full bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is round, slightly viscous, and fresh. The flavor profile is a stony minerality, ginger and lemon blend along with notes of chamomile tea, green apple, and white pepper. The finish is refreshing and lingers nicely. This Pecorino would pair nicely with fried scallops at the beach. Enjoy – Ken & Mark

Winemaker Notes: The 2020 Cavallo di Battaglia Pecorino wafts from the glass with beautiful aromas of yellow apple, ripe pear, dried chamomile, lime zest, green melon, citrus blossom and wet concrete. There's a gorgeous textural roundness on the palate that’s balanced by bright acidity. The savory finish leaves you wanting more.
