2005 Farnese Trebbiano d'Abruzzo

Since I'm cooking more Italian, it doesn't hurt to explore Italian wines. Tonight's entry is the 2005 Farnese Trebbiano d'Abruzzo from the Farneto Valley, Italy. Mostly Trebbiano d'Abruzzo with some Malvasia. Aromas of peach and flowers, a slight tartness but a mostly creamy mouth feel. Nicely dry, but full bodied with lots of fruit. I picked this up on clearance for about $8. Good with leftover cannellini beans and a crust of stale bread to soak up the juices. While such a meal sounds almost Dickensian, it's really quite tasty and filling during this cold snap that we're experiencing.
