Fontana Candida Frascati Elite 2019
In the hills near Frascati are areas of volcanic soil over 2,000 years old. Here the grapes for Frascati are grown. This wine has a delicate bouquet of wildflowers and fruit, a characteristic taste (fresh and distinctive), with just a hint of almonds to enjoy Fontana Candida Frascati to its fullest. Serve slight chilled (55 degrees F) to heighten the fruit and the wine's crispness. Fontana Candida Frascati is a delightful complement to seafood, poultry, and other light entrees.
60% Malvasia Bianca di Candia, 30% Trebbiano Toscano, 10% Malvasia del Lazio. Fontana Candida was founded in 1958 and is headquartered in Monteporzio Catone, Rome; their bottling cellar is also located here. Their 62-acre vineyards and vinification cellar are situated in the heart of Frascati. In the late 1950s, Giovanna Orta di Torre Uzzone, a noblewoman of Piedmontese origin, designed and patented a special, clear glass bottle with its wide, squat shape that has since become Fontana Candida's emblem.
