Tenuta Cerulli Spinozzi, Colli Aprutini IGT (Abruzzo, Italy) Pecorino “Cortalto” 2018

($17, Romano Brands):  First, Pecorino is also an Italian grape, not just a cheese.  Second, it makes lovely wines that I predict will take the world by storm.  This one by Cerulli Spinozzi, one of the region’s top producers, delivers a panoply of mouth-cleansing citrus flavors that buttresses its good density.  There’s a pleasing prickle on the palate and a subtle hint of bitterness — minerality — in the finish.
