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

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of subtle dried floral character, butchers wax and dried apple aromas greet the nose. This is rather complex if savory on the nose and quite attractive with hints of chalk and apple stem adding detail. Light bodied and fresh with an immediate wave of pear fruit on the attack, this settles into more subtle orchard fruits on the palate with a... Read More

  • 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!

  • Trebbiano is also used in Cognac where it is known as Ugni Blanc - the most widely used graps in cognac production. Originally a native of the slightly wamer climes of Italy but when used in the more northerly Cognac region of France it doesn't mature fully and so produces a more acidic wine - which is perfect for distilling and making into Cog...
