Pecorino Superiore DOC
"La Canaglia" 2017

(14% AbV). The organic certified Pecorino, coming from the Vigna Bianca vineyard, ferments in tank for 21 days and spends 6 months on the lees before being bottled. It is generally released to the market the spring after the harvest. Described by Slow Food wine guide among the best of its kind, with yields below 60 hl per hectare, this Pecorino is a highly concentrated white with a potential remarkable lifespan. The nose opens with pleasant notes of basil, chamomile flowers and apple trees. It continues with tones of citrus fruit, especially grapefruit and cedar, to turn to the yellow fruits, which typically becomes more evident after 18 months from the harvest. Canaglia in Italian means rascal and the Altieri bros decided to name the wine in such way due to all the potential cultivation problems that this variety can present any given year. Unfiltered. 12.089 bottles produced.
