We were able to get a small reload of this incredible white wine from Valentini after selling out after our previous offer. One of the great white wines of Italy, Valentini's Trebbiano is one of the best examples annually, and 2019 is a superb example that Galloni calls one of the best young examples from Valentini ever. This is sensational, and peak Valentini is available at this low pricing.
We have the 2019 Trebbiano from Valentini today, and it is one of the few Italian white wines we offer consistently. One of the key addresses of Abruzzo, Valentini, is a legendary figure in this part of Italy. The Valentini family is partly responsible for drawing attention to the wines of Abruzzo, making only three different cuvees and only vinifying in exceptional vintages. The Trebbiano is the white wine offering from Valentini and is consistently a superb example, proving they are one of the single best sources for Trebbiano. Valentini's Trebbiano is always spot on, elusive, and subtle at times, backed by a wild complexity and surprising amount of power. The tension, purity of fruit, profound minerality, and the delicate balance between richness and vibrancy put it on par with some of the best old-world white wines every vintage, and 2019 has it all and will continue to evolve beautifully over the next decade. 2019 is another fantastic vintage for Valentini and undoubtedly one of the best of all time.
Antonio Galloni 95 points! "The 2019 Trebbiano d'Abruzzo displays a vivid yellow-golden color. The bouquet captures the imagination as dried apricots and peaches are complemented by almond custard and cardamon. It's the fruit that impresses first, ripe yellow apple and young peach, followed by depths of stony minerality and enriching hazelnut traces. The 2019 keeps the taster guessing, at first juicy and remarkably fresh, then suddenly adding tension and a salty flourish that sways the sensation to the savory spectrum. This is expertly balanced, wonderfully complex and easily one of the most exciting young Trebbianos I've ever tasted from Valentini. (Drink between 2023-2035)"
