Camillo Trebbiano D'Abruzzo 2007 (Italian)

Time to switch it up a bit, I know it's been a while since I've featured a White wine. And to be honest, the white wines I've been drinking lately have, at best, been sub-par. Although this, white wine does not blow my mind, it has some interesting nuances that deserve some attention. Now, to my notes. Again the name of the bottle is Camillo Trebbiano D'Abruzzo 2007. On the nose is where I become very intrigued with this Italian Grape, I pick up, initially, a beautiful Pear and Cinnamon scent which literally makes me want to bite through this glass to get closer to the wine. Upon further sniffing, I also pick up hints of mint and acacia flowers, I love this nose. The taste carries with it good minerality accompanied with a blend of pear and apple throughout the palate. There is also a hint of orange peel on the mid/sides of the tongue but for the most part, it seems a little one-noted with the pear/apple components. Although a bit one-noted, it is a well made and balanced wine. And if you are searching for this wine, this Italian White wine is not a widely spread varietal around the United States, but I implore you, if you get a chance, to try this if you find it. And of course leave a comment. Happy New Year.


  1. North Beach Pizza in San Mateo just started serving this wine they had signs out for it at lunch. I'll have to check it out next time I go in. Sounds like they're upgrading their selection since so far it's been obscure and private labels only.

  2. When some one searches for his essential thing, so he/she wishes
    to be available that in detail, thus that thing is maintained over here.
