Map showing the Puglia region of Italy.

Bombino Bianco is a white-wine grape probably originating in the Puglia region of Italy, which is its home today. It has a lot of planted acreage because it is a prolific producer, but as usual quantity and quality tend strongly to have an inverse relation.

A few producers take some trouble with this grape, and they get wines with a nose of exotic fruits, which can include citrus and—sometimes—herbs. The taste shows those and a mild mineral quality. Acceptably done renditions are not profound, but make pleasant drinking. Bombino Bianco is sometimes bottled as “Ottonese”. Also, there is some thought that Bombino Bianco may be the same grape as Trebbiano d’Abruzzo (see our Trebbiano page).

Factoid: Bombino Bianco is known under many synonyms throughout Italy, notably including Debit and Pagadebit, names which came from the grape’s reputation for being a reliably high-yielding crop—so that growers would be assured at every vintage that they could pay off their annual debts.

Some Bombino Biancos to Try

(About this list.)

There are only a couple of Bombino Bianci on the U.S. market at moderate prices, and one is very scarce and geographically limited. Here’s the other, and it doesn’t have a lot of availability itself.
