Frascati Wine Tour
In the Castelli Romani area
A Sensational Wine Tasting Experience!
The town of Frascati rises on a soft hill located on the northwest hillside of Albano just 20 Km south of Rome. A pleasant 20 min train ride passing through the lush green area of the Castelli Romani. Ideal for those who love the city of Rome, but also enjoy nature and the simplicity of rural landscape. Offering picturesque views and lots of wonders for the visitors to see. Such as magnificent and historical Villas knows as Ville Tuscolane. But also boasting delicious food and a well established wine tradition.
Reason for local pride is in fact the renowned white wine. Which has been historically the first great wine success story. And if there is a wine which has become synonymous with Rome, it is the Frascati white. It features a yellow pale color with golden sparkles, with a winy accent, slightly fruity and full of body, with all the aromas of ripe fruit.
Traditionally produced by harvesting grapes after the first week October. Then stored in dark wooden barrels stowed away in local caves dug in tufa rock. And after decanting, it was ready to be consumed in spring.
In 1966 Frascati became one of the first Italian wines to be awarded the Frascati DOC classification of guaranteed quality (“Certified Denomination of Origin”). Under this regulation, the wine is to be made from the grapes of Trebbiano, Greco and Malvasia and can be produced in the more popular dry version as well as in the sweet version. Both either still or sparkling also know as Spumante.
