Valentini Trebbiano d’Abruzzo 2017

12.5% abv

Vol- 75cl

Pace, precision, and complexity: the nose thrills with lime fruit, herbal artemisia, saline salmastro and citrus zest, all tightly and exquisitely packed. It’s so racy, the product of old pergola vines from the white, fine tilth soils of the Colline Teramane zone, prized for Trebbiano (or Bombino Bianco if you’re Puglian), that spent a week macerating on its skin before nine months’ ageing in 40 hecarlitre old chestnut and oak barrels, plus two years in bottle. It’s so composed, so alive, with sapid citronelle notes, perfect pitch, Riesling-esque energy and crunch. Pulsating.

Valentini stands as one of the most venerable and esteemed names in Italian winemaking, boasting mastery in the art of traditional viticulture. Originating from Spain, the Valentini family's lineage can be traced back to 1650, a period when the Bourbons held sway over southern Italy and Abruzzo marked the northern boundary of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. In 1868, Camillo Valentini gained formal recognition for the exceptional quality of his wines. However, in keeping with the customs of the time, the estate was overseen by a manager rather than a family member.

The 1950s saw Edoardo emerge as the first Valentini to wholeheartedly devote himself to the estate, a commitment he maintained until his passing in 2006. Following in his footsteps, his son Francesco Paolo Valentini has assumed leadership, with support from his spouse Elèna, who hails from a Hispanic background, and their son Gabriele. Situated in the heart of the Colline Teramane DOCG zone in Abruzzo, at Loreto Aprutino, the 60-hectare property is nestled on sandy and calcareous clay soils, with views extending to the Adriatic Sea. The estate is divided between the cultivation of olive oil and grape varieties, including Trebbiano d’Abruzzo and Montepulciano d’Abruzzo both of which can only be described as the greatest examples produced in the region.
