Offida DOCG Pecorino

Guido Cocci Grifoni

This wine comes from our first hectare of Pecorino vineyard, the one where the story of this grape variety began. The first ‘parent’ of Colle Vecchio is today dedicated to Guido Cocci Grifoni and to the bottle that bears his name. It is our most recent declination of Pecorino, a wine made in few numbered bottles, in memory of who, where and when. And not to praise or glorify the past, but to photograph a moment of our past that has become present and future. Using descriptors today, for a wine that will have a life of over ten years, feels almost out of place. Just a few notes then, to give a reference, a trace of its first, very young expressions. Among our whites this is certainly the fullest, the most saline, the most present and the softest. Opens on notes of ripe apple and then moves on to intense and fleshy yellow flowers. Aromatic herbs step forward with determination, bringing a fascinating scent of star anise.

Talking about microclimate, soils, the set of factors that determine the uniqueness of a territory, what is called terroir, is of primary importance.

These elements define the character of a wine, they influence its sensorial traits.
Aromas and flavors will develop during fermentation and maturation, enriching the wine with hints that originate in the nature of a specific territory.

All this creates the peculiarities that see the first and main gustatory definition in the vine within a macro-area.
