Born in the Abruzzo region, Niro represents the ancient winemaking traditions of a region where vines date back to the Roman Empire. Nestled between the Adriatic Sea to the east and the Apennine Mountains to the west, the areas of Vasto and Chieti offer the perfect climate for highlighting all the exceptional characteristics of Pecorino grape.
Native to Italy, the Pecorino grape has been rediscovered in recent years. Named for the ancient tradition of herding sheep (Pecora is the Italian word for sheep), the Pecorino grape is one of the first to ripen and sheep are attracted to the fruit. When crafting Niro, only the best fruit is selected and vinified following traditional techniques forgotten by modern technology. Niro is a very powerful yet well-balanced Pecorino.
