Description

A really lovable wine

The history of the Cannellino is lost in time, just think that already on some treaties of the eighteenth century the praises of this sweet white wine were defined: the kind and graceful wine of Frascati. Produced exclusively with Malvasia Bianca di Candia and Malvasia del Lazio grapes (plus an addition of other local varieties) harvested late, thanks to the mild autumns of the Castelli district that favored keeping it on the plant, it was so called because it was used to being drunk from the cannella, the copper straw that came out of the wooden barrel; this white, light and lovable wine that, until just over a century ago, was kept in small vats, was used to being drunk during the summer, when the temperature range between the cellar and the outside, triggered a new fermentation, making it sparkling. Served fresh you would never stop drinking it!

Light straw-colored with greenish flashes, it reveals a nose characterized by floral and fruity aromas of ripe pear and wisteria, wrapped in honeyed sensations. Taste sweetish as per tradition, fresh and delicate.

Perfect with small pastries and with the maritozzi with cream, or with the semi-aged Roman pecorino.

An excellent dessert wine
We have purchased several bottles of this wine and can recommend it very helpful highly. It goes well with cheese and desserts but may be a little sweet for some. However, it is very easy to drink and a most enjoyable wine

Superb wine, very easy to drink
We have had 6 bottles delivered recently and have already tried the 2014 and 2015 years. Both are delicious, a little sweet, not too strong and most enjoyable. We had one with cheese and it went really well. We had the other with a fish dish, a nice partnership but just a little sweet. This is definitely a dessert or cheese wine and we will be buying more very soon.
