Wine maker notes
This traditional blend has played a role in the history of Lazio, going back over 1,000 years. The Pallavicini family upholds this singular tradition, crafting a thoughtful Frascati Superiore that celebrates the bright nose of this wine. The grapes are hand-harvested using a careful selection process, from late September through late October. No expense is spared to preserve the delicate perfumes of the varietals as they travel to the winery in refrigerated trucks. Malvasia di Candia, or Malvasia Rosso, gives the final wine rustic tones and its full color, while Malvasi del Lazio, or Malvasia Puntinata, lends harmonious notes and rich aromas to the final wine. Trebbiano Toscano rounds out the blend with a refreshing acidity.

Technical notes
Varietals: 50% Malvasia di Candia, 30% Malvasia del Lazio, 20% Tebbiano Toscano

Producer
The Principe Pallavicini winery was established by one of Italy’s oldest noble families. With over 300 years of viticultural experience, the family focuses on the development of the winemaking business in order to produce wines of impeccable quality in the magical, inimitable Lazio terroir. Principe Pallavicini represents the largest, private estate in Frascati. Of the 208 acres of vineyards at their Colonna (Pasolina and Marmorelle) and Cerveteri holdings, 133 acres are dedicated to the cultivation of white varietals for the production of Frascati DOCG. In-depth knowledge of the land has led to identifying the best vineyards, and after careful study and experimentation conducted in the field and in the cellar, these vineyards are producing increasingly more refined and enjoyable wines with their own outstanding personality. The team of agronomist Mauro de Angelis, winemaker Carlo Ferrini and resident winemaker Carlo Roveda controls every aspect of production, from cultivation to bottling. Great efforts are taken to maintain the rich character of each varietal. Careful selection, chilled transportation and tailored vinification techniques ensure that the final wines have the bright, nuanced personality of the varietals that went into them. To this end, renovations were initiated in the family’s historic Colonna cellars and Marmorelle vineyards in the 1980s. The refining of the wine takes place on the Marmorelle farm, where an old stable has been restored and equipped for drying grapes used to make raisin wine, while a section of an ancient aqueduct holds the barrel, cask and bottle chambers. The cellar has been designed to focus the utmost attention on this conclusive phase of the winemaking, utilizing a combination of traditional and modern techniques.
