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.

  • 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. There's enough acidity to prop up the wine until the very end, where it falls off a bit. Not a wine for everyone but if you're a fan of a wine with cheese notes, this is truly delicious. Read More

  • Perticaia Trebbiano Spoletino 2012

    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!
