Fresh & Crisp

Located on the hills that rise from the Adriatic Sea and neighbouring the coastal town of Vasto in Abruzzo, the Jasci family has been growing grapes and producing wine for three generations.

This vegan-certified wine made from Pecorino grapes is elegant and delicate, and shows aromas of grapefruit, apricots and nectarines. On the palate is pleasant, fresh and light-bodied. This Pecorino wine has a special saltiness and an aftertaste of bitter almonds.

Wines made from Pecorino pair extremely well with Pecorino cheeses drizzled with a bit of honey as well as vegetables, fish and white meats.

About the Winery

Azienda Agricola Jasci

Located on the hills that rise 250 meters above sea level from the Adriatic Sea just above the seaside resort town of Vasto in Abruzzo, here the Jasci family has been growing grapes and producing wine for three generations. Starting In the early 1960s, Pasquale and Maria turned the focus of their farm to producing estate wines.


In 1980, their son Giuseppe decided to convert the farm to organic, becoming one of the first ten wineries in all of Italy to be certified. Today led by grandson Donatello Jasci and his wife Piera, the family is the second largest single grower in all of the region. Donatello’s approach in the cellar is consistent with his farming: clean and simple. The wines see little or no oak and have a purity of flavor that is rare at the price. In addition to his duties at the winery, Donatello Jasci has served as President of the local Organic Growers’ Consortium.

91 points - David Lawrason

Here's a lovely pecorino offering freshness, structure, subtlety and complexity. It has a very fine nose of intriguing caraway, starfruit, orange and lemon blossom and acacia. It is light to medium bodied, firm and fresh with some fruit sweetness, lovely acidity and impressive, excellent to flavour intensity and focus. Delivers beyond its price. Tasted January 2021

91 points - Sara D'Amato

A stunning pecorino that begins discretely but builds on the palate. Offering flavours of tender white peach, rosebud and elderflower and jasmine. Ethereal in texture, effusively aromatic with lingering notes of mint and wildflowers. Highly memorable. Tasted January 2021.
