Trebbiano d’Abruzzo DOC
Our classic Trebbiano, made as always from heritage vines planted in the early 1970s, flanked by younger stock added in the early 2000s. We harvest slightly ahead of time to ensure the wine has a fresh, perky note. The secret of this Trebbiano’s finesse and elegance lies in being true to tradition while keeping an open mind to new ideas.
