Åsa's Wine of the Month: Trebbiano Spolentino

>> Wednesday, July 07, 2010

Trebbiano? No, Trebbiano Spolentino!

Wines made from 100% trebbiano can by thin and nondescript. This wine, Trebbiano Spoletino Bianco 2008, is also made solely from trebbiano. But it is a specific clone of the grape that has been used, coming from the area around Spolento in Umbria in central Italy. It was rediscovered by the producer Cantine Novelli after having been forgotten for hundreds of years. We wine consumers can be very grateful for this rediscovery – the wine is very fresh, with a good acidity, with mellow notes of almonds on the palate. The alcohol level reaches 13% and is a warm balance to the acidity. We tried it a warm summer day together with some ‘mozzarella di bufala’ (the real thing made from buffalo milk), succulent cherry tomatoes, olive oil, and some salt and basil. My suggestion this month, especially to those who look down the nose on trebbiano, is to try exactly that! Price around 13 euro. Web

For sure, it' a good choice and worthy to be tasted. And the price is fair.
