“CITRA Trebbiano d’Abruzzo 2017 has a lot going for it. Trebbiano is the dominant white grape in the Abruzzo region east of Rome on the Adriatic coast, known for producing uncomplicated and quaffable light white wines that are enjoyable with fish, shellfish, or on their own.
“Citra’s Trebbiano certainly falls into that category and, served not too cold, it becomes more than that, showing good complexity with lemon and green apple tastes, accented by floral and herb notes and a long, citrusy, and slightly creamy finish.
It’s also a real bargain, with a suggested price of $10 but available for as low as $7 or so, making it a good choice as an easy-drinking house wine or party wine. And with 450,000 bottles produced, you should have no problem tracking it down. The region’s main red wine, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, is often a good value as well.”
