Ciù Ciù Merlettaie Pecorino

Ciù Ciù Merlettaie Pecorino

Merlettaie means lace, and the name of this wine pays homage to the lace workers of Offida, characteristic of these hills much like the Pecorino grape. From vineyards in Offida and Acquaviva Picena, at 280m, this was native fermented and aged in 25hL Slavonian oak barrels over a period of 8-10 weeks, where it remained for 6 months on lees prior to bottling. Creamy and expansive on the palate, with toasted almonds, ripe pear, lemon curd, white peach blossoms, seasoned with light toast. This is a full-bodied, stately, polished wine, ready to tackle creamy dishes.

“The 2021 Pecorino Merlettaie wafts up with pretty floral perfumes before evolving to show exotic savoury spices, crushed pear and the slightest hint of fresh vanilla bean. It’s soft textured and potent, with a dense wave of mineral-tinged kiwi and melon that’s nicely balanced by a core of brisk acidity. This leaves the palate reverberating with citrusy tension mixed with nuances of young peach while finishing almost salty in character. Wow, CIÙ CIÙ has really taken Pecorino to a very serious place with the 2021 Merlettaie.” - 91 points, Eric Guido, Vinous
