PECORINO, OFFIDA DOCG, 2015
Antica Azienda Agricola Vagnoni Molina


The old farm, Vagnoni Molina, is a small viniculture of Piceno located in southern Marche, near the town of Offida, very close to the border of Abruzzo. The most common grape varieties grown in Piceno are Montepulciano, Sangiovese, Merlot, Passerina and Pecorino. One of the  best white grapes of the Marche region is Pecorino, which takes its name from the centuries-old local mixture of sheep (pecora) husbandry and winegrape growing.

Tasting Notes:  Full-bodied, rich and fruity, with a crisp finish, and goes remarkably well with most dishes.
