Clean, fresh Italian white that impresses with nice fruity flavours of lemon curd and green pear, with pretty floral hints and some beeswax weight on the mid-palate. Fluid and tasty!
A delicious party wine that goes brilliantly with light bites, fish and chicken - mmh!
Made from 100% Trebbiano, Abruzzo's chief white grape, fermented in stainless steel.
Organically-farmed Collefrisio, the project of third-generation winemakers Amedeo De Luca and Antonio Patricelli, is located in the hills of Frisa, Chieti province. The charming azienda vinicola (wine farm) features a huge loft nestled among the vineyards that contains a magnificent wine tasting and dining room for the many epicurean events that Collefrisio runs over the year, while its quiet, peaceful cellars lie underneath the vines.
Abruzzo is Italy's fifth-leading wine region, after Sicily, Puglia, Veneto and Emilia-Romagna. A beautiful, hilly place, with an extensive Adriatic coastline, its lush landscape is patched liberally with parks and forests. Abruzzo's winelands are ideally situated between the sea and the Apennines mountains (including 2,895m-high Gran Sasso). Montepulciano and Trebbiano are the most important grapes.
