Fontana Candida Frascati Superiore 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Flinty on the nose with some spice elements accenting a gently sweet herb framed core of grapefruit pith. This is light with some richness to add texture, and a nice, slightly creamy star fruit and citrus pith core of fruit. This is really for people who don't want to drink wine. Finishes with a bit more intensity, showing some melon, pear and peach tones and actually surprisingly decent length. 83pts

Fontana Candida:
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.

Really unexciting white wine from near Rome. A good summer wine for people who don't normally like to drink wine (as GDP has mentioned). Fresh citrus notes with some flinty minerality, apparently it was grown in volcanic soil...
