2014 Mojo Falerio, Marche Bianco (Trebbiano, Passerina, Pecorino blend) DOC
Mojo comes from the vineyards of Cantina Colli
Ripani located high in the mountains of southern
Marche overlooking the Adriatic Sea. This wine
is made from three different grape varietals,
Trebbiano, Passerina, and Pecorino, to form the
blend known as Falerio. Passerina, named for
the little female sparrow who loved to eat it's
tasty pulp, and Pecorino, from the Italian word
Pecora, meaning sheep (because the sheep used
to eat the grapes when herded past the
vineyards). Since the grapes mature at different
times, they are harvested at different times;
the Pecorino in early September, the Trebbiano
at the end of September and the Passerina in the
first 10 days of October.
Falerio is a
beautiful white wine with sensuous, inviting,
floral aromas and a fresh fruit taste that's
It pairs well with all types
of fish, shell fish and light meats or can be
enjoyed simply as a sipping wine. Serve chilled.
