Malvasia is actually a family of grapes, including Malvasia Istriana from Friuli in the North East of Italy and Malvasia di Lazio from the hills around Rome. Malvasia wines are characterized by their relatively full, fleshy body and soft texture in the mouth. Common notes associated with Malvasia include fairly intense floral, sometimes perfumed, aromas, peaches, apricots and white currants.
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.
