Wine By Grape Variety | Trebbiano d'Abruzzo
Trebbiano d'Abruzzo is a high yielding white wine grape variety that originated in the South-Eastern Mediterranean. Italy still has extensive plantings of the grape variety and it accounts for over half of the white wines in the country, with diminishing importance in the recent years.
The grape is also found in France, where it is known by the name of Ugni Blanc as a major component in Armagnac and Cognac that benefit from its high acidity and subtle flavours.
Trebbiano’s have received some poor press over the years being responsible perhaps for too many dull Italian whites (and red blends!). However, there is a new wave of winemakers clearing away the poorer clones and practices in favour of something far more respectable.
