Offida Pecorino DOCG

Red , Pecorino and Passerina: these are the three wines included under the Offida controlled and guaranteed designation of origin. They are the expression of a terroir which best exemplifies the potential of autochthonous varietals like Pecorino and Passerina. Offida Pecorino wine is made with at least 85% of the eponymous grape, and other non-aromatic white grapes grown in the Marche may be blended in. Offida Passerina must have at least 85% Passerina
grapes, while the remaining 15% may consist of other varieties, as long as they are non-aromatic and grown in the region. Offida Red is made of Montepulciano grapes with no more than 15% of other non-aromatic local grapes added in. Pecorino has a pleasant acidity, is straw yellow with a tinge of
green, its aroma is characteristic and pleasing with hints of white flowers, pineapple, anise and sage. It has a distinct and dry flavour, it’s tasty and fresh
with a lingering aftertaste. Offida Passerina is straw yellow with tinges of gold and has a lovely bouquet of yellow fruit pulp and hints of citrus. Its flavour is
dry, typical, characteristic and fresh. Offida Rosso must be aged for 24 months, 12 of which in wooden casks, and then in the bottle. It has a ruby red colour which turns darker with age. It has a complex and somewhat ethereal aroma with touches of red fruit, liquorice and chocolate, while its flavour is dry, well balanced, typical, soft yet generous. The Offida wines bearing the guaranteed and controlled designation of origin seal are made in the southern regions of the Marche, in an area between the provinces of Ascoli Piceno and Fermo.

An important event for the art of wine making was the opening of a Regional Wine Cellar in 1999 in the leading halls of the ex Convent of St. Francesco in Offida.
