2011 Vallevò Trebbiano d'Abruzzo

SKU #1091678

An all around great value for a white wine to keep in your fridge on a very regular basis! This classic Abruzzo white made from the Trebbiano grape is light, dry, and refreshing, with a nice range in aroma and flavor complexity to make a charming aperitif or backdrop numerous mediterranean inspired snacks and appetizers. Importer Oliver McCrum writes: "I'm not sure why I didn't bring in this perfect everyday white when I first started importing the Montepulciano; I certainly should have. The wine is pale straw in color, with aromas of almond, citrus and a hint of herbs. It is bone dry and finishes with a very attractive hint of apple-skin. This is a knockout everyday bottle of white wine, flavorful enough to stand up to a range of dishes but bright enough to make a good dry aperitif."

the Trebbiano family account for around a third of all white wine in Italy. It is mentioned in over 80 of Italy's DOCíS, although it has just six of its own, (Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, Trebbiano di Aprilia, Trebbiano di Arborea, Trebbiano di Capriano del Colle, Trebbiano di Romagna and Trebbiano Val Trebbia dei Colli Piacentini). This wine has honey and floral aromas, and a little bit of stone fruit on the nose. Crisp, with soft fruit (white peaches) and has incredible length with zippy acidity. All that for under Nine bucks! Serve it with fish, cheeses or pasta in cream sauce or just by itself!

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
