Seductive nose with notes of spring flowers, citrus fruit and ripe pear. Quite round in the mouth with refined acidity for juiciness. Lots of white fruit and citrus in the aftertaste.
Trebbiano d'Abruzzo or Abruzzese should not be confused with Trebbiano Toscano (which is known in France as Ugni Blanc and is the base wine for Armagnac and Cognac) or Trebbiano Modenese (also known as Trebbianina, which is the base wine for Modena balsamic vinegar).
It has milder acids than Toscano, it can sometimes be a bit lazy, but it is round and fruity and when well made, it yields a particularly good drinking wine.
To qualify as Trebbiano d'Abruzzo DOC, the wine must contain at least 85% of three grape varieties (either alone or together): Trebbiano Abruzzese, Trebbiano Toscano and Bombino Bianco.
