The 2019 Pecorino Don Carlino is spicy and sweetly floral, with a whiff of ginger giving way to spring flowers and a hint of wet stone. It’s soft in texture, with a pretty inner sweetness offset by salty acids, as minerals and tart orchard fruits create a display of tension toward the close. Hints of spiced orange and tangerine linger through the long and cheek-puckering finale. The 2019 Don Carlino is a stunning expression of Pecorino, yet it could use a year of cellaring to come fully into focus. (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2021)
