Tasting Notes: From the oft-forgotten Pecorino variety that is now re-emerging from the Marche, this wine bears no relation the familiar cheeses of the same name. Fermented and aged in stainless steel, the Offida Pecorino is medium-bodied and balanced with excellent acidity.

The Domain: The estate, owned and run by the family De Angelis, was founded in the 1950's by Alighiero De Angelis and Giovanna Ciabattoni in Cossignano, a small inland town in the Piceno region. The first ten years of intense work and gratification saw the realization of a winery in Cossignano and a vineyard of 50 hectares in the rural areas of Offida,Castel di Lama and Cossignano.
In 1985, with the arrival of Quinto Fausti, a new winery was established in Castel di Lama to relaunch the qualitative production of the establishment, passing from enormous quantities of wine to the production of quality DOC wines and thus including the De Angelis Estate in the list of the elite wine producers of the Marche region.

The estate started production with three historical vines of the Marche region, Montepulciano, Sangiovese and Trebbiano for the production of the three DOC wines Rosso Piceno, Rosso Piceno Superiore and Falerio. Later, these wines were flanked by Prato grand made from Chardonnay grapes, and Anghelos, the estate's flagship wine, made from Montepulciano, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese.

With the arrival of the third generation Elisa, Alighiero and Ravi, the grandchilden of the founder, the estate gave further confirmation of its historical interest in territorial production by adopting and nuturing two antique vines Pecorino and Passerina and, together with other local estates, became a supporter of the new Offida DOC for the production of DOC wines with high typological value.
