Select hillside vineyards in the DOCG zone in Frascati and Monteporzio Catone (Lazio, Italy). The volcanic soils are loose, porous and rich in minerals.
Handpicked grapes are divided into two lots. One is cooled before pressing to maintain aroma. The other is fermented on the skins in small oak barrels to preserve varietal character. A subsequent harvest, a few days later, adds hand de-stemmed whole grapes to the must to enhance aromas and flavors. The
wine is aged in bottle in a naturally cool and humid tufaceous rock cellar.
Color: Bright yellow.
Bouquet: Intense with exotic-fruit aromas.
Taste: Dry; full flavored, soft and savory, with a lingering ripe-pear and bitter-almond finish.
Ideal with seafood, white meats and pasta dishes.
