Trebbiano d'Abruzzo (grape variety)

The white grape variety originates from Italy; it is one of the many varieties of the large Trebbiano name group. Synonyms are Bombino Bianco di San Severo, Sbagagnina, Sbagarina, Svagadia, Trebbiano Abruzzese, Trebbiano Campolese, Trebbiano di Abruzzo and Trebbiano di Teramo. It must not be confused with the Bombino Bianco variety, despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities. The parentage is unknown. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2001, there is a genetic relationship with the Trebbiano Spoletino variety. And according to DNA analyses carried out in 2006, it could be a seedling of either the Biancame variety or the Trebbiano Toscano variety. The late-maturing vine is susceptible to powdery mildew. The variety is mainly cultivated in the Abruzzo region, where it is used in the DOC wines Abruzzo, Controguerra, Ortona, Terre Tollesi and Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, among others. In the Molise region, it is permitted in the DOC wine Del Molise. In 2016, 2,630 hectares of vines were reported, with an extremely downward trend; in 1990, the figure was 8,435 hectares (Kym Anderson)
