Trebbiano d'Abruzzo 2007 Valentini
The 2007 Trebbiano d’Abruzzo is stunning in this vintage. With age, Valentini’s Trebbiano often acquires distinctly Burgundian overtones, but in the 2007, those qualities are evident even at this early stage. White peaches, almonds and flowers all come to life in a textured, voluptuous, totally sexy wine loaded with class and personality. I can’t wait to see how the 2007 ages, but the truth is that this is the kind of wine that is likely to be extremely rewarding and just plain delicious throughout its entire life. The slight aromatic imperfections that sometimes are present in young Valentini Trebbiano are nowhere to be found. Simply put, this is a dazzling showing.
