Salted pear and ripe lemons, gravelly minerality, pristine clarity on nose. On palate, a thin line of sweet lemon is cuddled by rocks, gravel and lime zest. As it opens up a layer of fuzzy peaches emerges... fresh from start to a lingering, lovely finish. From the land of wine for the Romans, Frascati Superiore is a treat for today with rich history. In fact, the Colli di Catone estate has been renowned for its wines since the heyday of the Roman Empire; Antonio Pulcini fights to save the ancient indigenous grapes of Lazio - Malvasia Puntinata and Grechello - mostly displaced by other grape varietals.
A blend of 40% Malvasia Puntinata, 30% Trebbiano, and 30% Malvasia di Candia cropped at a fraction of permitted yields.
