See the passerina of this producer. Geko isn’t crazy either. Made from the best pecorino available to winemakers. Perfect. Hayloft without a farmer looking for a wife. Aniseed, fennel fineness, soft white fruit, mild acidity, dream bitters and smokiness blowing in. The official salad caprese wine, but don’t forget to try it with a Wiener schnitzel. Although that is not a signature dish in Marche’s kitchen, it did combine well. Especially when – as it should be – a slightly sour potato salad was served with it.”

Vinification

The grapes of the Offida Pecorino “Geko” are first picked by hand. They are then destemmed and softly pressed, whereby only the free-range must recovers. Subsequently, the fermentation takes place in vitrified cement tanks, at a controlled temperature between 13 and 15° C. Then, délestage takes place at the end of the fermentation; after which the finished wine is left alone on the fine lees. This is done with repeated batonnage up to the period prior to bottling. Finally, the Geko is aged in the bottle for 4 months.

Colour

This Offida Pecorino has a straw yellow color with golden reflections.

Odor

In the nose, the Geko is very intense and complex, at first glance hints of sage, for example. Following are aromas with floral and fruity hints of citrus.

Taste impression

The evolution is progressive in the glass, with a lot of personality and perseverance. The Geko is juicy and soft, with a good body of citrus and official herbs. Finally, there are hints of pineapple and acacia in the finish.

Culinary advice

The Geko from Ripawine goes well with grilled fish dishes and seafood, for example.
