Taste/Description: Trebbiano is one of the top grapes in Italy. Cool Italian nights help preserve the acidity of the grape, which is also used to make brandy and balsamic vinegar. This wine was a nice sip greeting the palate with juicy soft peach notes followed by refreshing lemon, green apple and hint of basil. I would say this one of the better Trebbianos I’ve tried as it had a nice balance between the crisp acidity with a hint of sweetness.
