Pecorino is one of many once-prominent local grapes that narrowly averted extinction when a winemaker who was passionate about their local wine and food culture hunted for remnant vines in abandoned vineyards and backyards, and, once found and replanted, saw the wine explode back into popularity. Abruzzo is the lower calf of the boot of Italy and Pecorino is once again widely planted there, with plantings rising by over 1250% from 2000-2010. Cantina Orsogna is a cooperative of over 450 growers who have been attracted by its focus on organic and biodynamic viticulture. Their Lunaria line is for wines with certified biodynamic grapes. Flavors of yellow and green apple, acacia, chamomile, creme fraiche and tarragon flavors, with high acid and yet a full-body, describe this wine that, coincidentally, pairs well with Pecorino cheese!
