    Fontana Candida, Italy
    Fontana Candida Winery Image
    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.

    When asked to name common Italian red grapes, most wine drinkers would probably begin with Sangiovese and continue with various other indigenous varieties. But Merlot (along with several other international varieties) has a significant presence in Italy, with over 60,000 acres planted. Granted, much of this is everyday quaffing wine grown in the northeast by producers taking advantage of the vine’s prolific nature, especially in the Veneto and Friuli.

    But through much of the country the wine is grown with more care and used predominantly as a blending agent, thereby adding a certain soft, fleshy appeal to a great many reds. Of course, this practice is often not mentioned on labels. In Tuscany, Merlot appears in a wide variety of blends, as well as sometimes in Chianti Classico. In fact, Italian Merlot reaches its greatest heights in the coastal Tuscan region of Maremma. Here it appears in blends and – spectacularly – in 100% varietal expressions like Masseto, L’Apparita and Messorio. Italian Merlots such as these boast the power, concentration and complexity seen in the finest examples from Bordeaux’s Right Bank.
