Trebbiano d’Abruzzo DOC
The Farnese Fantini winery is located in Abruzzi, just 19 miles away from the sea, under Mount Maiella, which reaches 3,000 meters (9,843 feet) above sea level. The range features a wide variety of wines made from grapes grown throughout the region and thus features many different terroirs and microclimates. The wines are crafted in the Colline Teramane DOCG appellation in large, ultramodern facilities covering 50,000 square meters (nearly 540,000 square feet) with state-of-the-art vinification equipment and French and American barrels for aging.
The winery also has a long history, going back to Renaissance times. Farnese was a noble family that – along with Princess Marguerite – produced wines that graced European banquet tables in the sixteenth century.
100% Trebbiano from vineyards located within the township of Ortona and covering 40 hectares (99 acres). Intense straw yellow, medium intensity and persistence on the nose, lively on the palate, with good body and balance, fruity and floral with notes of plums, peaches, white flowers – particularly orange blossoms and lemon blossoms.
