Francesco Cirelli has long been an outlier in his native Abruzzo. In a region dominated by chemical farming and mass produced wines, Cirelli has stood out by taking a firm stance on organic farming and minimalist winemaking. While his production is by no means teeny tiny, his wines are all made with the utmost care and attention.
The 2019 Pecorino has really come into its own with a couple years in bottle. The texture and acidity have melded quite nicely, while the wine is still marked by youthful notes of citrus and sea spray. Mint and pear carry through the slightly nutty, quite lengthy finish. And it remains delicious for 3-4 days after opening. Kirk Sutherland
