Sensory profile
A rich straw yellow with greenish highlights. The bouquet is delicately floral, with accompanying notes of citrus and tropical fruit. A generous-sized palate offers rich, full flavours that are vibrant and crisp, and the finish displays the classic note of almond. This pecorino is delicious with vegetable soups and with all fish-based dishes.
