Cocci Grifoni’s Tarà estate is situated in the Falerio DOC, a hilly landscape with breathtaking scenery dotted by medieval towns. The DOC is dedicated to white varietals like Passerina, Trebbiano, and Pecorino. The Cocci Grifoni family’s vineyards here are between 20 and 30 years old. The vines grow in a remarkable natural habitat bounded by large canyon ravines and furrowed by deep gullies that join with the nearby Tronto River. The typical microclimate of these vineyards, interspersed with uncultivated tracts of woodland, are an ideal environment for viticulture. The cliffs shelter the vines from cold north winds, and the ravines collect rainwater for natural irrigation. The temperature swings considerably from day to night. The complex ecosystem generated by the unique geography hosts a range of animal and plant species typical of the Mediterranean, a region defined by its indigenous bio-diversity.

Tenuta Cocci Grifoni was the estate responsible for the rise of Pecorino in Le Marche. This estate bottling certainly does them justice. Produced since 1974, this wine is made of hand-harvested Pecorino grown in the clay-sand soil of the Tarà estate vineyard. Fruit is gently pressed then fermented in stainless steel, where it rests for three months prior to bottling.

Straw yellow in colour with a shimmer of green, the nose is fresh, spicy, and green. Notes of grapefruit peel, aromatic herbs, white acacia flowers, and white peach are complemented by mineral notes and almond on the finish.

“There is a touch of Trebbiano giving this Pecorino some aromatic lift, and I really like the effect. It has a generous but delicate nose of wildflower, hay, sesame seed, melon and subtle peach. It is medium weight, fleshy, smooth yet warm and firm at the same time. All kinds of complexity and power. Excellent focus and length. Such great value.”
