Name of varietal: Trebbiano

Common synonyms: Ugni Blanc, St. Emillion, Thalia, White Hermitage, Castelli, Lugana, Malvasia Fina, Santoro, Spoletino, Tribbiano

Parentage of the grape: indigenous to central Italy

History of the grape: Trebbiano is one of the world’s most widely planted white grape varietals, not only for wines, but brandies and vinegars, including balsamic styles. It is believed that it originated in central Italy, but quickly spread throughout Europe and the rest of the world as empires and colonies were established. But despite its widespread plantings and usage, besides some fine releases from around the Abruzzo region (that often have the name of the varietal in its DOC title) it is rarely given credit since it’s often a minor blending grape, or appearing as one its many aliases.

Characteristics of the grape: light-bodied, crisp, high acidity, minerally, lemon, rosemary

Regions where the grape is currently important: You name, they grow it.

  • Zenato Lugana 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Crisp green apple and lemon aromas with notes of peach and tea leaf. More green apple and lemon in the mouth, a hint of tart acidity and more citrus leading into the creamy yet pleasantly zesty finish. Read More

  • La Fiera Soave 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Parmesan cheese and green apple aromas open for this inviting and interesting blend. Flavors are tart and refreshing, with lemon zest, melon and aged cheese rind.

  • I just bought a bottle of '09 Trebbiano from Duchman Family Winery in Texas, and in their hands is not merely a blending varietal! Great acidity with notes of banana and pineapple..with a tinge of pear. Makes you want to be on a beach somewhere! Great food pairing white!
