Wine Review Report :

Last reviewed: 5 June, 2018

The Italian region (Abruzzi in Italian) with the capital L'Aquila is located east of Rome with a 130 kilometre long Adriatic coast. It is divided into the provinces of Chieti, L'Aquila, Teramo and Pescara. Viticulture was introduced here by the Etruscans as early as the 7th century BC. The Greek historian Polybios (210-120 B.C.) mentions in his History of the Roman Empire, in the part about the Carthaginian general Hannibal (247-183 B.C.), that the wines from here were especially suitable for strengthening the soldiers. The Roman authors Pliny the Elder (23-79) and Andrea Bacci (1524-1600) also praise the wines.


The white grape variety comes from Italy. Synonyms are Arquitano, Iuvino, Norcino, Pecorina Arquatanella, Pecorino di Osimo, Promotico, Trebbiano Viccio, Uva della Pecore, Uva Pecorina, Verdicchio Bastardo Bianco, Uvina and Vissanello. It must not be confused with the Greco Bianco variety, sometimes called Pecorino. The origin (parentage) of the variety is unknown; according to an unproven hypothesis, it is said to come directly from a wild vine. The early-ripening, yield-insecure vine is resistant to both types of mildew. It produces fresh, fruity, acidic white wines with lemon aromas.
