CANNELLINO DI FRASCATI DOCG
THE HISTORY: Now considered a rarity, an “endangered” wine, kept alive by very few producers and destined to just as many enthusiasts. This enological pearl of Frascati has a centuries-old history: according to tradition, old and less productive grapes were to be picked last, postponing the harvest to November;
The bunches of grapes so picked were intact but shriveled up, giving life to a wine with high concentration of residual sugar.
WINE CHARACTERISTICS: This wine has an intense gold colour, it stands out for its strong fragrance in which are recognizable yellow pulp fruits, honey and dried fruit; in mouth it shows a sweet, powerful, elegant and tasteful flavor.
It’s a great contemplation wine and it finds a good matching with dry patisserie and fruit cakes.
Experts report a superb matching with strong flavoured cheeses and with herbs cheeses too. Recommended serving temperature is 16°/18°C.
