Additional Information on Cantina Zaccagnini Trebbiano D'abruzzo Il Bianco Di Ciccio 2014

Winery: Cantina Zaccagnini

Varietal: Trebbiano

The Trebbiano grape has long been an important grape in its native Italy, where it has been cultivated for wine production for over a thousand years. We know that Trebbiano was first brought to France in the 14th century, and that it proved to be a popular varietal which quickly spread throughout the country and to elsewhere in Europe. Trebbiano is often used for the production of fortified wines, and is commonly used as a blending grape, but there are also many fine single variety wines made from this varietal, which allow the characteristics of the grape to shine. In particular, it is known for a pleasantly high acidity, with flavors of citrus fruits, white flowers and all sorts of mineral notes on the palate.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
