|Areas of cultivation
||It is popular mainly in the Marche, but it is also found in Abruzzo, Umbria, Lazio and, in the least, Tuscany and Liguria.
||The variety has a long, complicated and all-too-common history. It has been cultivated in the Marche region for hundreds of years but low yields saw it replaced by more-productive grape varieties like Trebbiano. By the mid-20th Century, Pecorino was thought extinct. In the 1980s, a local producer researching native varieties investigated a rumor of some forgotten vines in an overgrown vineyard. Cuttings were taken and propagated, and eventually grew enough grapes to make a very good wine in the early 1990s. Since then, the variety's plantings have grown exponentially, and Pecorino is grown in Marche, Abruzzo, Umbria and Tuscany.

In the olfactory plant you can distinguish the renette apples with spices of cinnamon and licorice, and in some of the most well-known vinemarks also floral notes of broom and jasmine. Great structure, sapidity and minerality that need to be carefully balanced to give the right balance to wine especially in youth.
