Varietal: Trebbiano
One of the main grapes in the production of cognac.

Country: Italy
With vines stretching from its most southerly Mediterranean islands all the way to the foothills of the Alps, Italy has, just behind France and Spain, the most land under vines and exports more than any other country. With dozens of regions,and an even greater number of indigenous varieties particular to those regions, understanding all of Italy's wine can be a thoroughly exciting but lifetime long challenge. The most popular regions include; Piedmont, the home of Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Muscato, to name a few; Tuscany, known for Sangiovese, particularly in the Chianti area and the town of Brunello; And thirdly the Veneto, for its Prosecco and Pinot Grigio. Southern Italy's regions; Abruzzo, Campagnia and Puglia, not to forget the islands of Sicily and Sardinia are a great source of food-friendly and very affordable wines.

Region: Abruzzo
Located in central Italy, the Abruzzo region (sometimes called “Abuzzi”) is characterized by its mountainous landscape and moderate climate. Despite the rugged terrain, Abruzzo produces nearly twice the amount of wine than neighboring Tuscany. Major Abruzzo varieties include the red Montepulciano grape, along with the white Trebbiano d’Arbuzzo and Trebbiano Toscano grapes. The Montepulciano grape, not to be confused with the region in Tucany, is known for producing deep, tannic wines with relatively low acidity levels. Trebbiano d’Abruzzo wines are dry and offer subtle fruit, delicate bouquets and refreshing acidity. Traditionally wine from Abruzzo had been mass produced by co-operative wineries, but the region has recently shifted toward boutique production and is receiving increasing recognition for their wines.

Sub-Region: Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC
The Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC title was created in 1968, and covers a vast area of eastern Abruzzo. It spans all 75 miles (120km) of Abruzzo's coastline (right up to the border with Molise in the south and Marche in the north) and spreads inland for roughly 20 miles (32km). Much of western Abruzzo is too mountainous for effective viticulture, so most Montepulciano d'Abruzzo wines come from the low hills, plains and coastal areas. The finest examples come from the hills of the Teramo province; these have been granted their own DOCG title Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Colline Teramane.

Type: White
White wine is a wine whose color can be pale-yellow, yellow-green, and yellow-gold colored. The wine is produced from a variety of grape varieties. The flavor and color comes from the juice of the grape and sometimes the skin of the grape as well. Interestingly, not all white wine comes from white grapes. Some select red grapes are used as in Champagne.
