Frascati Superiore 2015 Docg

Product Description

Casale Marchese, Frascati, Rome, Italy 13.5% abv
Frascati as it should be; using the best clones of Malvasia and only use their name for the best 15% of their wines. This means that this Frascati has added depth and intensity that belies the reputation of this wine. A light, honeyed nose and herbal undertones combine with a subtle and sophisticated bitterness on this finish.

Tasting note (JOK after gourmet dinner June 2016):
Important to remember that the Frascati vineyards are only approximately 20 or so miles outside the centre of Rome so the best stuff gets drunk locally. Light 'gold' in colour (proper Frascati was called the Golden Wine by the Romans) with distinctive citrus aromas. Much richer and intense than our usual perception of Frascati as this obviously has a high % of Malvasia and Greco. This makes it similar to the wines the Italians drink rather than the Trebbiano laden versions (much 'thinner' and acidic) that get exported to the UK. The palate offers fresh citrus, Mediterranean herbs and a touch of almond oil. The wine has a good acidity but this is balanced by the richer, weightier texture. We drank this with poached sea trout, a spot of crab, Jersey Royal salad and some pickled samphire...the match was perfect!
