Trebbiano Spoletino is NOT the “Trebbiano” found in the rest of Italy. It’s a distinctive Umbrian varietal that emerged in the 18th century and thrived for years growing up into and in between maple trees. Largely abandoned in the early 20th century, it’s been rescued and replanted in more “normal” vineyards where it delivers astonishingly delicious, fragrent, and zesty wine today. And of the 20 or so Umbrian wine growers who bottle Spoletino, Vinous says Perticaia “has great success with the Trebbiano Spoletino variety; in fact, his is most likely the best Trebbiano Spoletino wine of the whole denominazione.”
Here it delivers HUGE aromas of ripe pear and Golden Delicious apple with a touch of spice and hints of starfruit and fruit blossom perfume. On the palate, you’re in for a wild ride. At first big, big, flavors of juicy pear, apple, sweet lemon, lime curd and grated ginger explode to fill your mouth. Then a gentle grip of steely minerality and fresh citric acidity focus the flavors and drive them through a long, mouthwatering, finish with pear, lemon/lime, star fruit and wet stone flavors linger on a very long time. As Nancy says, “That’s quite a ride!” Delicious solo, with creamy/rich dishes, garlicy pasta and all kinds of cheeses and – of course – Thanksgiving dinner.
“This is perfumed and fresh with sliced apple, lemon and floral undertones. Medium-bodied, polished and sleek with juicy acidity and crunchy, citrusy finish.”
