Fontana Candida Frascati 2010
Fontana Candida is a popular wine brand based in Rome, Italy, best known for their Frascati wines produced in the nearby hills of Lazio. The winery was founded in 1958 and has been producing Frascati (a dry, light, refreshing wine with floral aromatics) since then. Eventually the business expanded to include Pinot Grigio from the Veneto and Orvieto from Umbria.
Two and a half glasses
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.
