Farnese Fantini Trebbiano D'Abruzzo 2016
Montepulciano produces has round and plummy wine with soft tannin and relatively low acidity. They wines can frequently improve for three or four years. It should not be confused with the similarly named Tuscan wine Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, which is made from predominantly Sangiovese and is named for the village it is produced in, rather than for containing any Montepulciano grapes in the blend.
With vines stretching from its most southerly Mediterranean islands all the way to the foothills of the Alps, Italy has, just behind France and Spain, the most land under vines and exports more than any other country. With dozens of regions,and an even greater number of indigenous varieties particular to those regions, understanding all of Italy's wine can be a thoroughly exciting but lifetime long challenge. The most popular regions include; Piedmont, the home of Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Muscato, to name a few; Tuscany, known for Sangiovese, particularly in the Chianti area and the town of Brunello; And thirdly the Veneto, for its Prosecco and Pinot Grigio. Southern Italy's regions; Abruzzo, Campagnia and Puglia, not to forget the islands of Sicily and Sardinia are a great source of food-friendly and very affordable wines.
Located in central Italy, the Abruzzo region (sometimes called “Abuzzi”) is characterized by its mountainous landscape and moderate climate. Despite the rugged terrain, Abruzzo produces nearly twice the amount of wine than neighboring Tuscany. Major Abruzzo varieties include the red Montepulciano grape, along with the white Trebbiano d’Arbuzzo and Trebbiano Toscano grapes. The Montepulciano grape, not to be confused with the region in Tucany, is known for producing deep, tannic wines with relatively low acidity levels. Trebbiano d’Abruzzo wines are dry and offer subtle fruit, delicate bouquets and refreshing acidity. Traditionally wine from Abruzzo had been mass produced by co-operative wineries, but the region has recently shifted toward boutique production and is receiving increasing recognition for their wines.
White wine is a wine whose color can be pale-yellow, yellow-green, and yellow-gold colored. The wine is produced from a variety of grape varieties. The flavor and color comes from the juice of the grape and sometimes the skin of the grape as well. Interestingly, not all white wine comes from white grapes. Some select red grapes are used as in Champagne.
