Fontana Candida Luna Mater Frascati Superiore Riserva 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

89 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): Made with Malvasia di Candia, Malvasia del Lazio, Greco and Bombino grapes... a representative wine for its popular appellation. This Riserva shows thick lines and medium-bodied appeal with ripe fruit notes of apricot, Golden Delicious apple, pear and honey. Instead of sharpness, the wine offers soft lines and some fattiness in its texture. It is made in part with late harvest fruit to achieve that extra richness. Drink: 2015-2018. (Sep 2015)

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.
