One day, while walking in the foothills of the Majella mountains of Abruzzo, the wine merchant Ricardo Tiberio happened upon a plot of 60 year old Trebbiano vines that had gone essentially wild. He sensed something special about them, and after several years of planning, purchased the vineyard in 2000 alongside another thirty or so hectares of suitable vineyard land. Together with his children Christiana and Antonio, they proceeded to make a wine that questioned everything we thought we knew about this “low quality” grape. The Fonte Canale wine they first made in 2004 hit the wine world like a meteor, a wine with so much power, aromatic loft, and mineral-crusted depth that it belonged in conversation next to the greatest white wines in the world. That wine remains the flagship of their winery and the finest wine made in Abruzzo, but the Tiberio family makes some excellent wine with the rest of their property too. For all their Trebbianos, they use the native Trebbiano Abruzzese clone, instead of the invasive Trebbiano Toscana or Bambino. That famous mineral intensity is apparent, a salty, flinty soil note wrapped around preserved lemon and peach pit with some rosemary for good measure. The wine is deep, a full bodied white with lemon and peach and creamy texture, brilliant acidity and a hint of almond on the finish. A versatile match for seafood.
