Casale Marchese

Frascati is possibly one of the best-known names of Italian wine. The main reasons for this being its proximity to Rome, an important market, and the consequent attention it has attracted over the centuries, being frequently referred to in literature. The town of Frascati was, for centuries, a weekend retreat for wealthy Romans; hence as early as 1450 it had over 1,000 taverns!

The estate of Casale Marchese is on the hillside overlooking Rome; indeed the dome of St Peter’s can be seen on a clear day. Their wines are notable for Casale Marchese’s preference for using the Malvasia varietals to their full extent, despite the fact that they are difficult to grow. It was only in 1989 that the estate began to commercialise wines under its own name.

    The Casale Marchese estate makes Frascati as it should be made. They use the best clones of Malvasia and only the best 15 – 20% of their grapes are sold under their label. The remainder is sold to the local co-operative. The estate practices sustainable farming, coupled with high density, short-pruned planting, yielding limited grapes per vine. The result is optimal fruit concentration.
