Loretto Trebbiano Italia 2014

Loretto Trebbiano, IGT Rubicone, Emiglia-Romagna, Italy, 2014

IGT Rubicone roughly covers the eastern most 1/3 of the Emiglia-Romagna region (IGT Emiglia covers the western 2/3).

This wine: varietal trebbiano, aka ugni blanc, screw cap closure, 11.5% abv, M&S, £6.50

WSET style tasting note
Appearance: clear and bright, pale intensity lemon-green, showing tears.

Nose: clean on the nose, medium (+) intensity, youthful, with aromas of freshly pressed apple juice, a whiff of grapefruit, and an indistinct sweet floral note reminiscent of sweet pea flowers.

Palate: a dry wine, medium (+) acidity, medium (-) alcohol and a light body, medium intensity, a light grip, with flavours of green apple and white grapefruit.  A medium (-) length with clean fresh appley finish.

Quality: an acceptable quality wine, quite simple, almost monotone, with apple notes dominating, fresh acidity though, which matches the alcohol, and is harmonious with flavour intensity.  Sadly with modest flavour intensity and low concentration, manifest in the shortish length.  No complexity at all.

Readiness for drinking/potential for ageing: ready to drink now, this wine is made for early consumption, hold for up to a year, but will not improve, rather the fruit will decline and acidity dominate.
