Trebbiano d’Abruzzo DOC

£125.00

75cl

In Valentini’s hands, Trebbiano becomes ridiculously complex, ageworthy and just unforgettable. Valentini’s Trebbiano is a deeply mysterious and textural wine. In terms of breeding and sheer impressiveness, Valentini’s Trebbiano can hang with top 1er Cru White Burgundy.
The wines he crafts are lavish, extroverted, brimming with a flavour and texture that is absolutely unique, his Trebbiano delivers a fascinating, salty Adriatic minerality, honeyed and floral notes along with a subtle earthiness that speaks of the dry, sun-scorched land. Overall, they’re dense and saturating wines.

Valentini’s Trebbiano d’Abruzzo is one of the most compelling and singular wines in the world.

TASTING NOTES

Good bright yellow. The pure, complex nose suggests lime, yellow apple and botanical herbs. Then very precise, intense and penetrating, conveying a powerful, three-dimensional impression of extract and a deep, textured, multilayered mouthfeel. The wine closes very long and juicy, with herbal and saline elements that titillate the taste buds. Another outstanding wine from Valentini.

THE MAKER: Valentini

Valentini remains one of the oldest and greatest names in Italian viniculture; masters of traditional winemaking.
What is known about Valentini's methods all points to traditional winemaking and a maniacal commitment to quality. The vines are trained in the traditional pergola method and yields are aggressively restricted. The wine is fermented and aged in large Slavonian oak barrels, the youngest of which is 70-years-old; no barriques or stainless steel tanks are used. When the grapes aren't of a quality deemed appropriate, they are sold to the co-op.
