Fontana Candida Frascati 2010 750ml

Fontana Candida Frascati

Frascati has just joined the ranks of resurrected Italian white wines. Like Soave, Frascati was once ubiquitous in Italian restaurants in this country. It had great name recognition here and abroad. In the ‘50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s, it was the almost unavoidable tipple of any American visiting Rome. If you asked for a white wine in any Roman trattoria (the wine choice in those days in all but the city’s most sophisticated restaurants was simply red or white) what you invariably got was a vino sfuso from the nearby Frascati hills. Indeed, so close is Frascati to Rome that some of its vineyards now fall within the eternal city’s steadily expanding limits.

Color: Pale straw. Bouquet: Delicate fragrance of wild flowers and golden delicious apples. Taste: Dry, soft and fruit forward, with a lively taste that offers notes of peach and almonds.

Blend of Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes from the hills near Rome. Superior label. Excellent all purpose wine, dry and light, well suited to antipastos and fish dishes.

Ideal as an aperitif or with salads, pasta, veal, chicken and seafood.
