Winemaker Notes

Transparent brilliant, light yellow with green tinges. Fresh aromas of apricot, grapefruit, jasmine, and orange blossom, anise. Crisp and clean with zippy aromas and flavors of green apple, anise, and almond. On the palate, finishes with noteworthy balance, length, and sneaky concentration.

An excellent accompaniment to seafood and vegetable appetizers, freshwater fish, eggs, fried food.

100% Trebbiano Abruzzese grape, coming from massal selection vines. This wine is one of the rare and pure expression of the historical and original Trebbiano Abruzzese authentic clone. Made with no press, just using the free run juice.

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Tiberio Trebbiano d'Abruzzo was a revelation at a trade tasting that I attended. TASTING NOTES: This wine is rich and complex. Its aromas and flavors of savory spices and ripe fruit have a presence on the palate. Pair it with lightly-smoked oysters over fresh pasta. (Tasted: March 5, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Tiberio Tiberio Vineyards Winery Image
The story of Azienda Agricola Tiberio rings more like a new world tale than one from the old world of the ancient lands beneath the Majella and Gran Sasso mountains in Abruzzo. At 350 meters, twenty three miles inland from the seaside city of Pescara near the hillside town of Cugnoli, Riccardo Tiberio found an old plot of Trebbiano Abruzzese vines roughly 60 years old so impressive that he decided to change his and his family’s destiny. He knew that Trebbiano Abruzzese vines were a rarity and not at all to be confused with Trebbiano Toscano and other similar-looking but altogether different varieties that had been mistakenly planted instead. As the export manager for a well known cantina in the region, Riccardo knew well what Abruzzo grapes could offer and what the modern world expected.

He made the plunge in 2000, purchasing the 8 hectare old vine plot of Trebbiano Abruzzese with 31 hectares of land suitable for his single estate wines. Guided by decades of personal experience and one of Italy’s most renowned nurseries, Riccardo planted a selection of indigenous varieties matched to the different soil characteristics in the vineyard. Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, Trebbiano Abruzzese, and Aglianico, were planted along with Pecorino and Moscato di Castiglione clones from ancient vines in the area. Experiments with small plantings of international varietals were also undertaken. When Tiberio released its first vintage in 2004 the wine cognoscenti took notice of Tiberio’s mineral whites and fruit forward reds.

In 2008, Riccardo Tiberio handed over the reins of the winery to his highly competent children, daughter Cristiana and son Antonio. The role of agronomist goes to Antonio while Cristiana handles the winemaking duties. While Cristiana has traveled the world, she believes "that you can only truly make a wine with the greatest expression of the place if you have lived there and really understand the climate and sense of the place."

A warm, Mediterranean vine-growing paradise, in Abruzzo, the distance from mountains to seaside is relatively short. The Apenniness, which run through the center of Italy, rise up on its western side while the Adriatic Sea defines its eastern border.

Wine composition tends to two varieties: Abruzzo’s red grape, Montepulciano and its white, Trebbiano. Montepulciano d’Abruzzo can come in a quaffable, rustic and fruity style that generally drinks best young. It is also capable of making a more serious style, where oak aging tames its purely wild fruit.

Trebbiano in Abruzzo also comes in a couple of varieties. Trebbiano Toscana makes a simple and fruity white. However when meticulously tended, the specific Trebbiano d’Abruzzo-based white wines can be complex and long-lived.

In the region’s efforts to focus on better sites and lower yields, vine acreage has decreased in recent years while quality has increased.

Trebbiano claims a top slot in white grape vineyard acreage on a global scale. There are six distinct varieties with Trebbiano as part of their name in Italy alone. Somm Secret—Trebbiano Toscano, one of the most popular, is deliciously light and crisp. Trebbiano d’Abruzzo actually has some aging potential when handled carefully. Known as Ugni Blanc in France, Trebbiano is responsible for the whites in the southwest of France called Gascogne Blanc.
