The grapes were cold settled, crushed and destemmed, to prevent any tertiary flavours from the stalks. The fruit was then cooled to a temperature of 14 C° before being gently pressed. The must was decanted and separated by cold settling at 8°C. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts and lasted for three weeks at controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks, before being aged for four to five months. Made in an unoaked style to allow the Pecorello variety to be fully expressed. Pecorello translates as ‘sheep’ in Italian, hence the black sheep on the label.

Winery

Pecorello is a native variety grown in the Calabria region. A relatively thick-skinned grape it has medium vigour; it is mid-to-late ripening and is noted for producing aromatic wines. The Ippolito 1845 Pecorello grapes come from the Feudo and the Difesa Piana vineyards, two renowned viticultural areas in the Ciro Marina, which is located in the southern tip of Italy. Both vineyards are situated close to the beach, where the warm and sunny vineyards are influenced by coastal breezes. The vines are trained on the traditional espalier system at a density of 5,600 plants per hectare. The soils in each vineyard differ slightly: the soil in the Feudo vineyard is deep, alluvial, and of medium texture; while the soil of the Difesa Piana vineyard is sandy loam. The combination of the aromatic characteristic of the Pecorello variety, the distinctive soil types, and the proximity to the sea produce a complex and elegant wine with a Southern soul. The vines are cultivated according to organic and sustainable principles and the grapes are manually harvested in early September.
