Well, looking at the label you probably guessed it already! Pecora means sheep in Italian, and in keeping with that country's tradition of naming varietals for their likeness to animals, these grape clusters resemble a sheep's face!

This fruit in particular is grown at high altitudes, in the central region of Abruzzo, benefiting from cooler temperatures and Adriatic breezes. So we get aromas and flavors of ripe pear and lime zest with chalky minerality on the finish.
