OGpecorino farindola slow food

“On the nose this cheese delights you with scents of dry and red fruit, in the mouth with a full taste of sweet cheese with hints of mountain hay. The aftertaste provides delicate notes of pomace enhancing the long and sweet persistence of dry fruit in the mouth.”

Here is the portrait of the SLOW FOOD PRESIDIUM Pecorino cheese from Farindola (National Park of the Abruzzo region) aged in the pomace of the Albino Armani “Foja Tonda”  Terra dei Forti doc.

The test was tried out by the cheese producer Antonello Egizi and the wine maker Albino Armani, both so proud and fond of the territories they live and work in: the Appennines and the Alps respectively.

The Pecorino from Farindola aged in the pomace of Foja tonda, represents the precious result of a common and dynamic idea of local identity.

About Us

Four hundred years amongst vineyards and an infinite passion for wine. The history of the Armani family and that of viticulture in the Adige Valley, between the provinces of Trento and Verona, have been evolving together, without interruption, for more than 4 centuries. Today  “Albino Armani Viticoltori dal 1607” means territory, or rather territories. The historical property in Dolcè, in the Adige Valley in the province of Verona, is one of 3 wineries located in the region Veneto: one other is to be found in Marano, in the Valpolicella Classico area, and one  in the province of Treviso, in San Polo di Piave, where our biodynamic wines are produced. Two more wineries are located in the regions Trentino and Friuli. All five wineries watch over their territories, vinifying the grapes of the surrounding vineyards. In each of them the common thread is a terroir reflecting its specific particular character in the wines springing from its soil. The headquarters remain in Dolcè, where the “Conservatoria”, a project for safeguarding local grape varieties in danger of extinction, can be visited.
