Description

Torre dei Beati Trebbiano d’Abruzzo Organic “Bianchi Grilli” DOC 2018

Torre dei Beati Trebbiano d’Abruzzo “Bianchi Grilli” exudes balsamic notes and spicy herbs of variety. This bottle of white offers a deeper, more complex and distinctive tone that expresses the soul of the grape more authentically. The naturally high acidity and minerality challenge the typical barrel ageing roundness and give the Pecorino a new character.

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.
