Trebbiano d’Abruzzo DOC is a white wine from the Abruzzo region on Italy’s Adriatic coast. It is made from the Trebbiano d’Abruzzese grape variety which, despite displaying ‘hay and white currant characters’, is being increasingly overlooked by more fashionable and characterful varieties like Cococciola, Passerina and Pecorino,’ says Oz Clarke (2015, p.24).
Production zone: Anywhere below 600 metres (1,970 feet) in the Abruzzo region’s four provinces: L’Aquila inland in the western hills, and Teramo, Pescara, and Chieti from north to south along the Adriatic coast.
Production: 2004 4,112 producers, 4,654-ha, 196,936-ha (ISMEA 2004).
Certified organic: Torre Raone (Loreto Aprutino).
