I tasted this Trebbiano d’Abruzzo from Nicodemi winery the other day at the Golden Glass/ Slow Wine event in San Francisco.  It was a good reminder that even grapes considered to be humble and modest can produce lovely wines thanks to the right winemaker.

This was an aromatic masterpiece- lovely honeysuckle and a flowery melon component that lingered above the glass.  On the palate it was lush, mineral and full of bright Meyer lemon and lychee flavors.  An over-achiever of a Trebbiano, and a gem of a wine.

Viva Abruzzo!

About The Author

I love all things Italian: the beautiful country of Italia, the Italians themselves, the language, the food… and above all, I love Italian wine. The people I meet in my charmed life are fascinating, the wines are extraordinary. I needed a special place like this to write about them, and to remember them.

    I was wondering if this producer uses the Trebbiano that is the same as Ugni Blanc in France’s Cognac region or if it is the commonly mistaken Bombino Bianco (whos synonym is Trebbiano d’ Abruzzo). It seems that most Trebbiano d’Abruzzo is really Bombino Bianco (the same that is imported to Germany to make the entry level Sekt. Any information would be helpful.
