Fratelli Barba Trebbiano IGT 2021
Fratelli Barba is originally an old, winegrowing family based in Abruzzo though with ancestral roots from Naples. For many years, they sold their grapes but in the 1950s, their philosophy changed and they decided to produce their own wines. Today, they farm over 27 hectares of vines and produce 9 different wines from 4 different indigenous varieties and one delicious olive oil. We love their wines delicious upfront fruit appeal. Their 2021 Trebbiano d'Abruzzo opens up with an appealing roundness on the palate, focusing on its fruit and gently waxy texture. An easy going aperitif wine which could easily accompany lighter flavoured dishes.
Robin says 'Trebbiano is actually used loosely for a number of different varieties which may or may not be related and are grown in a number of different Italian wine regions. At last count there were at least seven! Barba's Trebbiano d'Abruzzo is known for its more discreet style and would make a fun alternative to those who seek out italian Pinot Grigio.'
