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. This wine is ideal with seafood, white meats and pasta dishes.

Wine Spectator
Medium-bodied and compact, this serious white layers firm green melon, spicy Anjou pear, salted butter and citrus zest notes on a fresh, chalky frame.

Italian White Wine

The rolling hills and endless coastlines of Italy deliver a unique diversity of soils and climate to foster a number of regional specialties. With a multitude of indigenous varieties that thrive exclusively here, the selection of white wines offers a range of styles and flavors.

The most well-known white variety in Italy is of course Pinot Grigio. Typically found in the northern Italian regions, the light, fresh and easy-drinking options can be found in the Veneto region, while the richer, more complex styles come from Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Trentino-Alto Adige. These two northeast regions are also crafting delicions Pinot Bianco and a regional specialty, Friulano.

In Piedmont, two white regions shine. The crisp and zippy Gavi, made with a Cortese grape, and Arneis, a variety that produces a subtle by dry wine. In the Veneto, the Garganegna grape creates the wine of Soave, a zesty but medium-bodied wine full of rich stone fruit and floral notes.

Further south, you'll find the pretty and floral Falenghina, rich and tropical Grillo and zesty Greco. Head to Sicily to discover the delicious and complex Etna Biancos, made with the Carricante grape in the island's volcanic soils.

If you enjoy a tangy but textured white wine with seafood, head to Sardinia and try out the Vermentino there. The grape is also found in other Italian provinces and is always a delight.
