I have drunk some Pecorinos before, but this is the first I've heard about "Offida" being a DOC . . . "G" to boot! Pecorino is a white Italian varietal that's typically fragrant, fruity, crisp, and simple. This one is a very nice example.
Light brassy gold color. Fragrant nose of pears, citrus zest, chalky minerals, and a fleeting note that reminded me of the smell of largemouth bass slime (fishermen will know what I'm talking about). A weird note in this context, but not unpleasant. Mouthfilling, dry, gentle flavors of pear and minerals. Very clean in the mouth. I think this was about $12.99 at Total Wine in Fairfax.
