Trebbiano D’Abruzzo DOC
“Trebbiano” comes from the Italian word “trebbiare”, meaning harvesting. It used to be the white wine that the farmers drunk while harvesting grain under the summer sun of a warm and flowering Abruzzo. We have tried to close into a bottle all these summer smells and colors, hoping to share with you the simplicity of a wonderful land.
