The silky Pecorino IGT adds glamour to the bejeweled collection of Orlandi Contucci Ponno. This golden liquid is juiced in totality from Pecorino grapes grown in Abruzzo. The grapes are collected manually in cycled intervals.
After stemming the grapes and after being very softly crushed, must is statically raked off and poured into thermo-conditioned stainless steel tanks to undergo temperature controlled fermentation.
After aging for a few months in steel tanks the fine quality fermented wine is then bottled in March to be put on market.
This powerful IGT wine made from sensitive Pecorino grapes is a refreshing treat from Abruzzo region.

The production every year yields 75 quintals per hectare.
