496 Frascati DOC is a blend of 90% Malvasia Candia and 10%Trebbiano Toscano from 35 year old vines, organically grown on rich volcanic and mineral soils of the De Sanctis vineyards. The De Sanctisfamily practices organic viticulture on the gentle sloping green hills of the Frascati DOC, just 15 miles from Rome. The grapes are hand-harvested and soft pressed in air-tight temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, and then naturally fermented with native yeasts and without sulfites for 15-20 days. The wine is aged on the lees for about 5-6 months and finally bottle-fined for about a month. The color is a light golden yellow. The nose is fragrant and pleasant, with aromas of wild flowers, almonds, and hints of fresh herbs. The extremely well-balanced palate shows beautiful ripe flavors of golden apples, almonds, and sage, along with brisk acidity, bright minerality and a lingering finish.

Pair it with seafood, vegetable risotto, and fresh cheeses.

4 of 5 Very good Italian white June 5, 2018
Reviewer: Alexis Gomez from San Francisco, CA United States  
I really like this interesting white wine: I had it with a quinoa and avocado salad and I particularly appreciated the floral and fruity aromas. I am looking forward to trying other wines from the same producer.
