Trebbiano D'Abuzzo. Denominazione di Origine Controllata 2010.
(Kirk McKoy / Los Angeles Times / December 9, 2011)
This is a zippy Trebbiano from an estate in Italy's
south dedicated to organic farming. I can remember when it was nearly impossible to find a crisp white from that region. But Cirelli's 2010 Trebbiano d'Abruzzo is as refreshing as lemon sorbet. The fruit tastes ripe and golden, but the wine is bone dry.
It's just what's needed if you're serving a seafood salad or pasta. It's great with vegetable soups, beans with tuna and grilled salmon. Who knew easygoing Trebbiano could have this kind of elegance and balance? At $13, it's a small miracle.
