Pure late harvest Trebbiano. Historically a common place variety used as a component in blended wine. It’s unusual when found as a single varietal wine, and even more so when harvested late in the season, at the end of the Sangiovese harvest.
The idea of Tribiana came from the existing grapes of one of our Chianti vineyards, where white grapes of Trebbiano were fully present, and after several tastings between Burgundy and Provence. Uncertain of whether or not to uproot those old vines in order to plant Sangiovese. We chose the hardest path and looked for the traditional white wines from the Lands of Pisa. Invested our passion and creativity in producing a “lost” white wine where today, lands are devoted to Sangiovese and Merlot.
Fermented in French oak barrels, sur lies, Tribiana expresses a mellow honey taste with a supple and mineral finish.
