    Winemaker Notes

    Passerina del Frusinate is a dry white wine made from indigenous grapes, characterized by a lively and fruity fragrance and a dry flavor that recalls the scents of the earth. The color is straw yellow with green reflections. The wine is clear, clean, fresh and full bodied.

    Pair with first courses, crustaceans, shellfish and fresh cheese.

    Corte dei Papi, Lazio, Italy
    Image of winery
    Corte dei Papi is inspired by the symbolism and the accuracy of the floor of the Cathedral of Anagni, made by the "Cosmati" – a Roman family of artists who became famous for the beauty of their mosaics in the twelfth century.

    The two concepts - symbolism and accuracy - are the core of the winery's philosophy: on one hand they want to collect the inheritance of a millennial tradition, on the other they want to make it perfect carefully using the modern tools at their disposal, thus mixing ancient techniques and modern technologies.

    Known as the ancient homeland of the Latins, today there is a vigorus wine industry beyond the city limits of modern, bustling Rome. The Cesanese grape, full of red berry, spice and rose, is responsible for Lazio’s only true local reds. Lazio’s most famous white wine, called Frascati, is based on the local Malvasia del Lazio and Trebbiano Toscana. A sweet version, called Cannellino di Frascati, is also made.

    With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
