Falerio Pecorino DOC
Wine made using Pecorino grapes (100%).
The collection of the bunches, carried out by hand in plastic crates, is anticipated of a few days to avoid an excessive accumulation of sugars inside the berries, that is typical of this kind of grapes. This technique makes us get a wine perfectly balanced, with a great structure, but at the same time fresh, with a remarkable acidity.
The production is about 70 quintals per hectare.
After the harvest the destemming takes place, use of cold for clarification and dry ice to avoid oxidation.
It ages in steel tank first and then in bottle, for a total rest of at least 6 months.
Straw yellow colour with yellow-green highlights, cristal clear and consisten.
The nose offer complex aromas combining white flowers and ripe yellow fruit such as pear, peach and banana.
The style of this wine is based on verticality and freshness in mouth. The last one determines a plesant persistence in mouth and provides an uncommon longevity.
The great body gives the wine an important impact from the first sip.
Then, it becomes a smooth and persistent wine as it heads into the long finish.
