Marramiero Trebbiano d’Abruzzo Altare 2015 **
Rich example of Trebbiano d’Abruzzo, stone fruit, vanilla, honeysuckle, ripe pear. Supple in the mouth, not a fresh style, but I expected it and I bought it for that reason.
The problem is in a disconcerting bitter finish which I suspect could be caused by the very high alcohol: I don’t remember having ever seen a white wine at 14.5%! Maybe some Californian Chardonnay, but nothing from Europe for sure. Too bad, I had I hopes for this.
