I tasted this Trebbiano d’Abruzzo from Nicodemi winery the other day at the Golden Glass/ Slow Wine event in San Francisco. It was a good reminder that even grapes considered to be humble and modest can produce lovely wines thanks to the right winemaker.
This was an aromatic masterpiece- lovely honeysuckle and a flowery melon component that lingered above the glass. On the palate it was lush, mineral and full of bright Meyer lemon and lychee flavors. An over-achiever of a Trebbiano, and a gem of a wine.
