Vellodoro Pecorino Terre di Chieti IGT
Vellodoro Pecorino is a white Umbrian wine produced by Umani Ronchi winery, made from 100% Pecorino grapes grown in Roseto degli Abruzzi. Due to low productivity, Pecorino cultivation had almost disappeared, while less qualitative but more fruitful vines has been preferred to Pecorino. Since 2005, Umani Ronchi has re-evaluated this native grape variety through the Pecorino Project, aimed at discovery and exploitation of Adriatic native varieties, as well as a strengthening of our position in Abruzzi region.
After a light pressing, the prime must is rapidly cooled and then goes through static decantation. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 16‐18°C for about 10/15 days. The wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation. The wine rests in stainless steel tanks for about 4 months, in contact with its own yeasts.
Bright straw yellow colour, it presents intense aromas of fruit and flowers to the nose, with very clear mineral notes, intense and persistent. On the palate it shows a good structure and a pleasant freshness, with ripen fruit and sapid hints. We suggest serving it at a temperature of 10-12 °C.
