Pecorino d’Abruzzo “Machaon” Ausonia DOP 2018


The “Machaon” Pecorino is a native grape variety of the hills of Abruzzo. It is fermented in steel with indigenous yeasts and aged for 6 months in bottle without the use of added yeast or filtration, all following the principles of biodynamic agriculture. The company was founded in 2008 by Simone and his wife Francesca who together have realized their dream: to give life to a wine that is not only delicious, but that manifests its specific identity.
