Parentage of the grape: indigenous to central Italy

History of the grape: Trebbiano is one of the world’s most widely planted white grape varietals, not only for wines, but brandies and vinegars, including balsamic styles. It is believed that it originated in central Italy, but quickly spread throughout Europe and the rest of the world as empires and colonies were established. But despite its widespread plantings and usage, besides some fine releases from around the Abruzzo region (that often have the name of the varietal in its DOC title) it is rarely given credit since it’s often a minor blending grape, or appearing as one its many aliases.

Characteristics of the grape: light-bodied, crisp, high acidity, minerally, lemon, rosemary

  • Soave Classico Pieropan 2014

    Snoothrank:

  • Monte Tondo Casette Foscarin Soave Classico 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Slightly dusty and dry, a bit honeyed with notes of melon and ripe apple, light wood dust and toast with a bit of cream. On the palate this is juicy and oily on the palate with nice full body, pleasant spice and a finish of lemon zest and cool mineral sea breezes. Read More

  • Perticaia Spoleto Trebbiano Spoletino 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Stony minerality and salinity on the nose with fresh floral notes and a touch of peach. Very brisk on the palate with high acidity and loads of fresh lemon bursting out front and mellowing towards a brooding oak note with more citrus on the finish. Read More

  • I just bought a bottle of '09 Trebbiano from Duchman Family Winery in Texas, and in their hands is not merely a blending varietal! Great acidity with notes of banana and pineapple..with a tinge of pear. Makes you want to be on a beach somewhere! Great food pairing white!

  • Trebbiano is also used in Cognac where it is known as Ugni Blanc - the most widely used graps in cognac production. Originally a native of the slightly wamer climes of Italy but when used in the more northerly Cognac region of France it doesn't mature fully and so produces a more acidic wine - which is perfect for distilling and making into Cog...
