Regional Features & Food Pairings

Bombino Bianco is mainly grown in the Puglia region, especially around the towns of Foggia, Barletta and Andria. It is also grown in small quantities in Molise and Abruzzo. Bombino Bianco is a late-ripening variety. It is a vigorous variety that can easily produce large yields, so pruning and canopy management are important techniques to ensure good quality. Due to its light body and bright acidity, Bombino Bianco is usually vinified as a dry, still white wine. It has good resistance to most fungal diseases. In Puglia, Bombino Bianco is mostly used to make fresh, easy-drinking wines, but also in Emilia-Romagna, Lazio (where it is called Ottonese in the province of Frosinone), the Mache and Abruzzo. The Trebbiano d'Abruzzo DOC is particularly confusing because it can be made from 85-100% Bombino Bianco - ie Trebbiano d'Abruzzo - or from 85-100%Trebbiano Toscano. Bombino Bianco wines are best enjoyed with light dishes such as salads, seafood, and white meats. They are also a great match for spicy and aromatic dishes such as curries and stir-fries.
