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.
External Reviews for Fontana Candida Pinot Grigio Venezie IGT
Touches of pear and almond give this light, dry white an easy approachability which resolves into an herbal finish.
Yes, it's light, but it's also clean and fresh, blending pear and lime flavors pleasantly into a decent aperitif.
Well focused, with ripe flavors of pear, apple, fig and spice that resonate on the finish. Lush and full-bodied, it's one of the better, and eminently affordable, varietal wines from Northern Italy.
From the rolling hills of the northeast Italy comes this crowd pleasing white wine. Dry, crisp, fruity and well-balanced, with hints of lime, it would pair well with poultry, seafood or light entrees.
