Top Selling White Wine 2014: Martin Ulisse Trebbiano
Trebbiano
Trebbiano

 

Reminiscent of a pinot grigio or an un-oaked chardonnay, the Trebbiano is a light bodied, off-dry, crowd pleaser with the delicate flavors of pear, and apple. This mellow lightly fruity white has a hint of minerality. Its crisp clean finish makes it an "easy to drink" wine which can be had alone, or chilled on a hot summer day and yet compliments any meal.

Signature

 

Similar to a pinot noir, this Southern Italian beauty is fermented in 100% stainless steel for a medium body that drinks easily with a pleasant finish. Mild plum, spice, and dark cherries finish with soft tannins and white pepper. Exceptionally smooth across the palate, this off-dry wine is fruity yet not sweet and is a great happy hour or patio wine that is also incredibly versatile with food.

Did You Know?

The history of wine spans thousands of years and is closely intertwined with the history of agriculture and Western civilization. As of today, the earliest evidence of a fermented drink based on grapes is in China circa 7000-6600 BCE, then more widespread evidence is found soon thereafter in the Near East, the grapevine and the alcoholic beverage produced from fermenting its juice were important to Mesopotamia and Egypt and essential aspects of Phoenician, Greek, and Roman civilization.
