Adarmando 2019

Bianco Umbria IGT


Tabarrini’s premier white wine demonstrates the through line of power and elegance that Montefalco imbues in its wines. Adarmando utilizes 100+ year old Trebbiano Spoletino vines that show the level to which old vines concentrate and layer flavor in the glass. This site is the last of Tabarrini’s to be harvested, a decision that requires the difficult task of vinifying the reds, cleaning equipment, and then making the white. Only free run juice is used, with the wine spending a year on the lees with occasional battonage.


The Trebbiano Spoletino used was planted in 1920, providing some of the oldest vines in the region. The vines are the last of Tabarrini’s to be harvested (often in November), a choice made for style and respect of the vines.


To show how serious Tabarrini is about his white, he vinifies the Trebbiano after the reds have been made, requiring a devotion to cleaning the equipment lest the red impart any flavor or color. Depending on the vintage, skin-contact is employed for texture and flavor. After fermentation, the wine rests in stainless steel for 12 months with occasional battonage before 6 months in bottle.


A smaller yield resulted in wines of good concentration, with year balanced by extremes of heat and rain. Disease and hail pressure were mercifully low, allowing for a higher quality of fruit.

Tasting Note

Intensely fragrant white truffle on the nose, with the palate expressing a range of orchard fruit woven into loamy earth. Textural and enticing, the wine shows a supreme ability to age.
