Frascati

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.

The cave

A suggestive visiting experience. Running underneath the vineyard. Cutting through the hill of volcanic origin. Therefore rich in mineral such as potassium, phosphorus, calcium and magnesium with low nitrogen content. Giving the wine a unique and characteristic taste ranging from full-bodied reds to soft whites perfect for the summer months in the open air.

The Vineyard

As you emerge from the other side of the cave you will be able to enjoy sweeping views over the valley and the vineyard. A magnificent landscape with views reaching all the way down to the city of Rome in the far distance. Where the old farmhouse is located, now replaced by the newer structures. You will be able to take walks in between the grape rows. Admiring the grapes up close and learning how they are cultivated. With the town of Frascati and Monte Porzio Catone in the far distance.

Award Winning Wines

The wine “>” Cesarese (Maggiore) from the winery Olivella has won the silver metal at the Grand International Wine Award Mundus Vini. Adding to the many prices already awarded such as the Silver Metal won from the Decanter World Wine Awards.
