The 2016 Cantina De Sanctis 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 family vineyards located in the gentle sloping green hills of the Frascati DOC just 15 miles from Rome in Central Italy. The grapes are hand harvested and transported to the nearby winery where they are soft pressed in airtight temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, naturally fermented with native yeasts and no sulfites for a period of 15-20 days, the wine is aged on the lees for about 5-6 months and finally bottle fined for about a month.
In the glass the wine is a light golden yellow color.
The nose is fragrant and pleasant with aromas of wild flowers, almonds and hints of fresh herbs.
The palate is extremely well balanced showing beautiful ripe fruit flavors of golden apples, almonds and sage along with brisk acidity, bright minerality and a lingering finish.
This wine will pair well with Fish, Seafood, Vegetable Risotto, and Fresh Cheeses.
