White Wine

De Angelis Offida Pecorino 2018, Marche D.O.C.G., Italy: From the Marche wine region, De Angelis Offida Pecorino is great value under $15. This is a vibrant white made for rich seafood dishes and yes, Pecorino cheese. This is a great producer from the area. De Angelis are a family run winery that hand harvest, use natural yeasts, and have been recently been certified organic. Pecorino is often overshadowed by the more famous Verdicchio, which has many appellations nearby. Verdicchio is lean and crisp, while Pecorino has a softer more inviting character with aromas of fresh white peach, vanilla, spring florals and fine herb notes on the palate. This vintage is also showing soft orange and white pepper spice flavours with a gentle briny finish. Pecorino food pairings: grilled shellfish, salads, quiches, seafood pizza. Drink: 2019 - 2021 577734 12.9% XD 750 mL $13.95 Score: 88/100. February 2020. Best Value White Wine Full Review Add to Shopping Cart
