Pecorino, an ancient but lesser known grape varietal, might just be the cure for your vino blues. Ampelographers (scientists who study grapes) believe that the grape's name stems from the Italian word for sheep, Pecora (not to be confused with the cheese). Local legend has it that sheep in the Marche region would often eat the grapes while moving through the vineyards (aren't they lucky). A floral and fruity wine, this nose will find notes of white peach, acacia, and jasmine, while the palate will be filled in by flavors of pear, cantaloupe, and sea salt. Enjoy this with chicken scaloppine, spinach cannelloni, or, obviously, pecorino cheese.
