Hay and salty scent. Smooth, a bit creamy with a mild lemon flavor. Has a grassy finish.

Extremely light but pleasantly crisp. Not much complexity, but would be nice for sipping on outside on a hot summer day. Would be overpowered by any food heavier than a salad or light seafood.

Created almost 2,000 years ago, Frascati is one of the world’s oldest wines, and Fontana Candida Frascati is the most popular Frascati in the world. The grapes for this dry, clean wine are grown in the porous, volcanic soils located in the Frascati commune near Rome. Rich in potassium, this soil produces plump, flavorful grapes. Fontana Candida is the only Frascati producer that uses cold filtration and cold bottling to preserve the wine’s flavor and clarity.

wine is brilliant yellow with golden highlights and has a bouquet of lemony apricot and honeydew melon with an intriguing minerality. It has a full and rich palate, with a fruity density and a very light sweetness with herbal notes.
