Lunaria 'Civitas' Pecorino DOC 2016 - Abruzzo, Italy


The Story

Cantina Orsogna is an award-winning Abruzzo cooperative specialising in native grapes of the region such as Montepluciano d’Abruzzo, Cococciola and Pecorino. Orsogna are committed to the biodynamic principles by which they make their wine and have many certified Demeter biodynamic wines. Under the brand Lunaria, they support the activities of the WWF soslupo campaign to protect native wolves in Abruzzo and Calabria. The campaign includes a petition banning the killing of the wolves and a series of actions on anti-poaching, management of stray dogs and dedicated monitoring of the species in the two regions.

M+Q Notes

Not to be confused with the cheese, this wine takes its name from the Italian word ‘pecora’ meaning sheep. This is due to the fact that local sheep in the region would often eat the grapes whilst walking through the vineyards. This Pecorino is certified `Demeter` biodynamic. Bright gold in colour with an aromatic nose. A soft and pleasant wine with aromas of citrus, ripe pear, peach and orange blossom. The palate is clean and rich with a pleasing mineral complexity and a long finish.
