Pecorino is a long-forgotten grape variety which is making a come-back. Thought to be extinct by the mid 20th century, it was rediscovered and since the 1990s plantings have grown considerably. Native to Central Italy, it produces fresh, crisp mineral-driven wines with floral notes.

The grapes for Carminucci's Belato come from organically cultivated vineyards in Offida in the central region of Marche, renowned for excellent Pecorino. 250-300m above sea-level, the soil is rich in minerals and clay and grapes are hand harvested. Grapes undergo 12 hours of maceration before gentle pressing and fermentation in stainless steel. Further ageing in stainless steel for three months.

Belato is a fresh and elegant wine of straw yellow appearance with lifted aromas of green apple and pineapple. These mingle on the crisp, dry palate with mineral tones and a tangy, fruity finish. Try with spaghetti carbonara, mushroom ravioli or risotto, nut pastries, noodle dishes, or salty and nutty cheeses such as Pecorino. 

Established in 1928, the Carminucci estate produces high quality wines from 45 hectares of organically farmed grapes in central Italy. Yields are kept intentionally low, combined with a modern approach in the winery to truly reflect the grape and the terroir.
