A classic expression of this well-known white, with an organic twist. Using organic techniques and a "slow wine" sensibility, this harmonious white offers a complex yet typically poised Italian style. Delicious and rare, the De Sanctis Frascati is a beautiful aperitif or match with white meats.

Overview

Grape

80% Malvasia del Lazio, 20% Bombino Bianco

Its Origins

The farm De Sanctis is only 15 km from Rome, in the green countryside of the Frascati DOC wine scene, the area of the ancient lake Regillo in Lazio. The vineyards of Malvasia, Malvasia di Candia, Trebbiano, Bombino and Cabernet Francare are farmed with organic farming methods, respecting the cycles of nature.

What The Critics Say

91/100 Vinous, Ian D'Agata (2017 vintage)

"Bright deep straw color. Peach, apricot, melon, and herbs on the fresh, saline nose. Rich dense and complex, with more saline nuances to the fresh orchard fruit flavors; this is very savory in the true sense of a volcanic terroir, such as Frascati’s. Abelos means “tree of life”. The wine is a blend of Malvasia del Lazio (80%) and Bombino Bianco (20%). Made from certified organic grapes."
