Winemaker's Tasting Notes: Trebbiano d’Abruzzo is an ancient and indigenous grape variety from Abruzzo, a unique clone different from others of its same family. Its beautiful acidity together with the aromatic balance make of it a fine wine with complexity at the same time. It has an elegant and austere expression when young with a great minerality, as it is truly age worthy and able to evolve with time, after few years it gains complexity, volume and profoundness.
About the Wine: Emidio Pepe has been producing hand-made traditional wines since 1964. The Trebbiano is foot trodden and the must is then fermented in little cement vats without any selected yeast, according to ancient methods. After two years the wine is hand-bottled without being filtered. The wine is slightly golden-hued with notes of yellow fruits and nuts.
