Review: 2011 Marina Cvetic Trebbiano d’Abruzzo Riserva

MC Trebbiano RiservaA curiously late release for an Italian white wine, this trebbiano from the Abruzzo region in south-central Italy pours a deep gold, offering notes of deep oak, roasted apples and pears, vanilla custard, and quite a few herbal notes. The big body dives into hardcore brown butter, coconut, and just a touch of tropicality. You are readily forgiven for assuming this is California chardonnay — and a readily drinkable one, at that — if you sample it blind.
