The name of Pecorino white wine grape variety, also known as “grape of the sheep”, derives from the strongconnection between sheep farming and agriculture, and the presence of this grape variety in theareas of shepherds’ transhumance. In the past this grape variety, thanks to its high aromasconcentration, its good alcohol content, and even more thanks to its wonderful acidity which is themost distinctive characteristic of Pecorino, was used to improve the quality of wines produced withother varieties. Pecorino growing had almost disappeared because of its very low productivity, andvarieties which were quality wise of a lower level, but which had a higher productivity, had beenpreferred to Pecorino. Our Pecorino Project started in 2005 and represents the new Umani Ronchifront in its discovery and exploitation of Adriatic native varieties, as well as a strengthening of ourposition in Abruzzo region
