Torre dei Beati Trebbiano d’Abruzzo Organic “Bianchi Grilli” DOC 2018
The estate only grows a few native grapes which they love to vinify in a single-variety style to express the terroir of the grapes. With the name “Bianchi Grilli” a very limited white wine production is born. There is a saying in Italy "avere grilli per la testa” which literally translates to “to have crickets in one’s head”, meaning to have creative, unique, fun ideas. “Bianchi Grilli” is a type of white cricket, and even though we don’t want it on our heads, it shows how we can have fun and creative ideas with wines.
100% Trebbiano d'Abruzzo from a vineyard that is 300m above sea level, grown in clay-limestone on a sandy sublayer. Fermentation took place in a barrique and aged for 11 months on lees and another 8 months in the bottle.

An intriguing mix of tomato leaf, thyme, chamomile, lemon peel and yellow plum starts off this intense white. A fifth of the wine saw time in acacia tonneau, with the rest in stainless steel, yielding a well-rounded palate that walks the line between richness and tension. The bright acidity wins out on the finish, bringing zesty lift to the herbal close.
