Again, this is a special dinner party wine, for elegant fish dishes or, perhaps, a lobster. Moving across the Apennines to the Adriatic coast, the Col del Mondo Sunnae Abruzzo Bianco 2017 comes from the hillsides around Pescara in Abruzzo and is made from a blend of trebbiano, the obscure passerina and some pecorino. It’s a complex white, with a viognier-like nutty, honeyed note underpinning the orchard fruits.

Italian Vintages

Overall the results are very good in 2018, though a warm wet early summer led to disease pressures in many parts of the country. The North East, home to Prosecco amongst others did particularly well; so too did Tuscany and Piedmont but yields are a little down in some estates. 2017 saw a small crop of excellent wines; spring frosts and later heatwave nicknamed lucifer reduced yields but you’ll find good results on the whole with excellent results in Piedmont. Yields were down in 2016 but quality is high, Piedmont and Tuscany at least as good as 2015. 2015 is generally an excellent vintage across Italy, perhaps reds having the edge over whites. A year that necessitated a lot of work in the vineyards due to the rains, 2014 has produced some surprisingly good results with elegant fresh wines across the country. The long, cool growing season of 2013 produced aromatic, well-balanced wines, whilst 2012 showed particularly well in Tuscany and in sheltered sites in Piedmont. A warm growing season in 2011 gave powerful wines with ripe tannins in contrast to the cooler season of 2010 which gave fresher wines for mid-term drinking. 2009 was another warm year with higher alcohol, ripe tannins and good aromatics. 2008 delivered approachable, soft, elegant wines. This followed the excellent pair of 2007 and 2006. 2005 proved to be a difficult year with erratic weather patterns. Age-worthy, complex wines were produced in 2004 after the hot year of 2003 which seemed to suit Tuscany better than Piedmont. 2001 backwards, through to the latter half of the ’90s, proved something of a run of very good or excellent vintages, in which 1997 stands out, even in this company. 1994 gave lighter, fruity wines (drink up) while 1993 was patchy, 1992 was wet, 1991 was spoiled by rain at harvest, but 1990 was superb, starting the decade on a high.

Again, this is a special dinner party wine, for elegant fish dishes or, perhaps, a lobster. Moving across the Apennines to the Adriatic coast, the Col del Mondo Sunnae Abruzzo Bianco 2017 comes from the hillsides around Pescara in Abruzzo and is made from a blend of trebbiano, the obscure passerina and some pecorino.
