Editor note: Firm, complex and deep, clearly oxidative aroma of dried yellow fruits and flowers, tobacco, nuts and smoke with woody notes. Very tightly woven, distinctly concentrated, again partly dried, very sweet and at the same time tart-spicy fruit with dried floral, iodine, nutty and smoky tones, certain acid bite and grip of ripe tannin, multilayered, deep and persistent on the palate, honey tones, maple syrup and again also vanilla wood spice, plenty of power and substance, viscous texture, salt in the background, coffee next to it, completely ageless style, long, highly concentrated, complex finish. Will be able to mature for generations.

The region with the capital Florence is located in the centre of Italy on the Ligurian coast; it also includes the third largest Italian island Elba.

As early as the Roman polymath Pliny the Elder (23-79) spoke of a "Vinum trebulanum" from a place called Trebulanis in Campania. And Petrus de Crescentiis (1230-1320) described Trebbiano as a noble, long-lasting wine in 1303. But actually, it is wrong to speak of a grape variety. In 2001, the result of a study was published. According to DNA analyses, there are hardly any relations between the many Trebbiano varieties. So, it would be wrong to speak of a grape variety family (the same phenomenon applies to the four name groups Lambrusco, Malvasia, Muscatel, and Vernaccia). However,...

Synonym (also San Colombana, San Colombano Paradiso d'Italia, S. Colombano) for the vine variety Verdea; see there.
