Pecorino

Pecorino is a light-skinned wine grape used in Italy's eastern coastal regions, particularly in Marche and Abruzzo. A classic Pecorino-based wine is dry and mineral, straw-yellow in color and has an elegantly floral bouquet of acacia and jasmine.

The name Pecorino means "little sheep" and is perhaps more widely associated with Pecorino cheese, which is made from ewes' milk and is entirely unrelated, save for its etymological link. The grape is so called supposedly because it was a favorite treat for flocks of sheep driven to lower pastures.

Synonyms include: Arquitano, Pecorina Arquatanella, Mosciolo, Vissanello.

Food matches for Pecorino include:

  • Pecorino cheese and walnut bread
  • Steamed white fish with ginger
  • Chicken thighs with roasted red pepper and onion
