BIO - Vegan wine
The lace makers of Offida weave threads with quick and precise gestures, the last witnesses of an ancient and precious art whose origin is lost in memory and over the years ... thus the origin of Pecorino, a noble Italic vine, austere and powerful, relegated for decades to barren and steep mountain slopes of the Piceno Apennines. Rediscovered today by the passion of a few winemakers, rare and precious, capable, even over the years, of unleashing an intense personality, evoking ethereal and persistent sensations. Personality and power enhanced by the fermentation in noble woods of this product, an example of historical memory and new heroic wisdom.
