Trebbiano is most likely the grape that makes the most wine in the world. It is also frequently called Ugni Blanc and is used in Cognac for the production of the famous spirit. Perhaps the most successful Trebbiano-based blend are the Orvieto whites of Umbria, which use a local clone called Procanico. Originating in central Italy, Trebbiano spread throughout that country and across the border to become France's most important white variety as well. Trebbiano stands unblended in six D.O.C.s, the most characterful of which are Lugana and Procanico. Trebbiano on its own is pretty much a crisp, citrusy wine.
