Tiberio Trebbiano d'Abruzzo 2020
The story of Azienda Agricola Tiberio begins at 350 meters, twenty-three miles inland from the seaside city of Pescara near the hillside town of Cugnoli. Here, Riccardo Tiberio found an old plot of Trebbiano Abruzzese vines roughly 50 years old so impressive that he decided to change his and his family’s destiny. These are old-vine, limestone-terroir wines that we absolutely adore.
VM91: The 2020 Trebbiano d'Abruzzo lifts up, more savory than sweet and decidedly floral. Dusty dried flowers and incense give way to hints of crushed raw almonds. Its round textures find balance, as a wave of brisk acids and mineral-tinged orchard fruits cascade across the palate. A gentle tug of citrus and hints of peach linger. The 2020 is a remarkably pretty and lifted vintage for Tiberio’s Trebbiano.
