Trebbiano d’Abruzzo is the Abruzzo region of Central Italy’s dry white wine appellation partner to its iconic red, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo.
This DOC is the only appellation in Abruzzo which focuses on the production of white wines. The name “Trebbiano” comes from the word Trebbiare, which means harvesting. Some accounts place the production of Trebbiano in Abruzzo since the sixteenth century. With its straw yellow colour, it is known for its pleasant bouquet of fresh flowers and fruit, with a dry and harmonious taste.
Roughly 14 million liters of Trebbiano d’Abruzzo is produced each year. A select few producers use barrel fermentation and/or barrel maturation to create examples with greater complexity, depth and body.
