Pound for pound at this price ($25-ish) this is the best pecorino I can think of that I have had. While Pepe's is the benchmark it's also 6-10 times the price in the US! I drank this a week apart over 3 nights from Coravin and it got better every time I went to it. More expressive and complex each time. Loads of pear, golden delicious apple, honey, minerals and florals, medium bodied but densely flavored, super long in the finish, this is a go to wine for me in my house for Italian whites.

This must be in the top 5 of pecorino examples on the market. Consistently good.

Nice smokey white with plenty of complexity, some tart on the finish, some golden honey yellow fruits

The 2019 Pecorino Giocheremo Con i Fiori has a deep golden color. A captivating bouquet mixes candied ginger with dusty florals, wild herbs, incense and crushed, green apple. This is silky and rich, boasting a noticeable inner sweetness, balanced by stimulating acids and mineral-tinged orchard fruits. While extroverted and ripe in style, energy remains high throughout, as this tapers off spicy with a hint of sour melon that keeps the mouth watering for more. The Pecorino for the Giocheremo Con i Fiori is fermented and aged on the lees for six months in stainless steel tanks prior to bottling. (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2021)

This captivating Pecorino shows a bouquet of candied ginger with dusty florals, wild herbs, incense and crushed green apple. Silky and rich, yet balanced by stimulating acids and mineral-tinged orchard fruits, it tapers off spicy with a hint of sour melon that keeps the palate wanting more. $22.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2021)

Zesty and refreshing, with a friendly touch of funk.

Pecorino is also an Italian white grape. Incredible texture a weight, with a pronounced taste of lemon zest. Paired with torched prawn and Virginia ham. This 2013 still has much life ahead of itself. Bravo!
