    Winemaker Notes

    Luna Mater Frascati sets a new standard for Rome's most renowned white wine. As mystifying and enigmatic as its namesake, Mother Moon, it refl ects the wine's close ties to nature and its vineyards with an average age of 50 years. A blend of indigenous white varietals, it is a tribute to the tradition of the region yet crafted with contemporary winemaking technique. The label, designed by Roman artist Domenico Bianchi graphically conveys the unique beauty and mystery of this wine.

    Bright yellow in color. The bouquet is intense with exotic-fruit aromas. Dry; full flavored, soft and savory, with a lingering ripe-pear and bitter-almond finish.

    Ideal with seafood, white meats and pasta dishes.

    Blend: 50% Malvasia Bianca di Candia, 30% Malvasia di Lazio, 10% Bombino, 10% Greco

    Fontana Candida
    Where the most ancient history meets the most modern trends and tastes, here is positioned Fontana Candida. The name of a cellar which is the most authentic and refined expression of the wine tradition of Latium and of Rome, places which join together age-old elegance with energy, poetry and vitality. Here, in the land of culture and delight are born wines famous and loved throughout the world, first of all Frascati.

    For fifty years Fontana Candida has been undisputed protagonist of the diffusion and success of Frascati world-wide. Its main mission has always been the enhancement of this denomination, the true wine patrimony of the Roman land, with an enormous quality potential, partly still to be explored.

    The freshness and the personality of the wines of Fontana Candida, products of particularly acclaimed vineyards and outstanding expertise, embody very well the life-style and the richness of history and of traditions typical of the area which they belong to, known and enjoyed throughout the world.

    One of the most iconic regions of Italy for wine, scenery, and history, Tuscany is the world’s most important outpost for the Sangiovese grape. Ranging in style from fruity and simply to complex and age-worthy, as well as in price from budget-friendly to ultra-premium, Sangiovese makes up a significant percentage of plantings here, with the white Trebbiano Toscano trailing far behind. Within Tuscany, many esteemed wines are produced in their respective sub-zones, including Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Bolgheri, and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The climate is Mediterranean and the topography consists mostly of picturesque rolling hills, with the hillside locations hosting the best vines, as Sangiovese ripens most efficiently with maximum exposure to sunlight.

    Sangiovese at its simplest, often carrying a regional designation of Chianti or just Italy, produces straightforward pizza-friendly wines with bright red fruit and not much more, but at its best it shows remarkable complexity. In top-quality Sangiovese-based wines, expressive notes of sour cherry, balsamic vinegar, dried herbs, leather, fresh earth, dried flowers, anise, tobacco smoke, and cured meat fill the glass. Brunello in particular is sensitive to vintage variation, performing best in years that are not too hot and not too cold. A more recent phenomenon as of the 1970s is the “Super Tuscan”—a wine made from international grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, or Syrah, often grown in Tuscany’s Bolgheri region, with or without Sangiovese. These tend to be big, bold, and modern in style, often with noticeable new oak, and sold at super-premium prices.
