Collefrisio Trebbiano d’Abruzzo “Filare”
WHY WE LOVE IT
- The Trebbiano d’Abruzzo appelation is the only DOC in Abruzzo to specialize in the production of white wines.
- Exhibiting a delicate bouquet and crisp acidity, this is a classic example of Trebbiano d’Abruzzo.
Varietal Composition: 100% Tebbiano d’Abruzzo
Elaboration: Maceration at low temperature upon grapes removal from the stalks and controlled temperature alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel.
Tasting Notes: Straw-like yellow color with green reflections. A strong fruity scent, containing hints of pear, peach and tropical fruit. A fresh and lasting taste, well balanced and with good structure.
Third-generation winemakers Amedeo De Luca and Antonio Patricelli created the Collefrisio winery in 2004 in the hills of Frisa, Chieti Province, in Italy’s Abruzzo region. The estate is based on the hilltop holdings they acquired from the Frisio family (hence the name “Collefrisio”). Vineyard holdings are 35 hectares in total, and all farming is organic. We first came to Amedeo and Antonio for their very fine Montepulciano, and have expanded our stateside selection into white varietals over the last year.
