The construction of Pecorino almost disappeared due to the very low production and previously lower quality. In 2005, Umani Ronchi and Velenosi took the initiative to give these native varieties the place they deserve. Thanks to a lot of effort and love, the Pecorino is back on the highest podium in Abruzzo. The name of the Pecorino grape variety, also known as "sheep grape", is derived from the strong link between sheep farming and agriculture and the presence of this grape variety in the areas of the shepherds. Velodoro refers to the sheep's golden fur.

Currently, the Pecorino is seen as a special, original wine with yellow fruit and a clear mineral touch. The grape's past, with its 80-year disappearance, is very special and people in the Marche region can justifiably be proud of the re-entry of Pecorino wine on the market.

The Pecorino grapes are picked by hand early in the morning or late afternoon and stored in small containers that are kept in cold cold stores before being taken to the winery. After the harvest in mid-September, the grapes are carefully selected; after gentle pressing, the temperature is immediately lowered and the fermentation always takes place in temperature-controlled ear (14-15 °C) stainless steel vats. The wine is aged until February/March at a temperature of about 10 °C to obtain its beautiful aromas.

In the glass, the Umani Ronchi Pecorino Terre di Chieti has an intense and radiant straw yellow color. In the nose, the wine is pleasant with scents of exotic fruit, a floral bouquet of hawthorn, acacia with some boxwood, apple and citrus. In the mouth, the fresh aroma of the Pecorino is particularly noticeable. A delicious wine with its typical high concentration in aromas and beautiful acidity.
