Producer Note
The undisputed champions of Frascati wine, the Santarelli family is almost singlehandedly responsible for transforming Frascati into a Titan of the volcanic wine
category. Their Frascati DOCG is a deserved winner of the Tre Bicchierri award and is
truly one of Italy’s great white wines. The first two hectares of the estate at Castel de
Paolis were acquired in 1974 by Giulio Santarelli and in 1977, Giulio started acquiring
further plots of land neighbouring the existing vineyard. Little by little, the estate grew to
its current size of just over 10 hectares, producing fresh, elegant and distinctive wines
from this outstanding volcanic terroir.
Vintage
The 2019 season enjoyed regular conditions throughout the vintage. Fresh
temperatures during spring led into a mild summer, which saw low rainfall, reducing risk
of disease in the vineyard. The grapes ripened evenly and reached good maturity
levels. The healthy fruit was picked during the latter part of September.
Vineyard
The vineyard is located on the volcanic hills South of Rome. The vineyards were
completely replanted during 1990 to 1992, at a density of 5,500 vines per hectare to
limit vigour, thus concentrating the flavours in the grapes and the 25-year old vines yield
80 quintals (8,000kg) per hectare. The vines are planted at an elevation of 300 metres
above sea level and are orientated towards the south-east to maximise sunlight
exposure. The linear rows of vines are cordon spur pruned, which suits the warm, dry
climate. The volcanic soils are layered with granular tuffs, which are rich in mineral
elements producing elegant and fresh wines with a distinctive character. The handharvested grapes are picked at optimal ripeness.
Winemaking
The grapes were cooled to preserve the quality immediately after being picked, and
the bunches were gently pressed to extract the juice. The must was cooled and
fermented with selected yeasts at 15°C in stainless steel tanks, to obtain a good flavour
extraction. The wine was aged then aged in stainless steel tanks for approximately six
to eight months prior to being gently prepared for bottling.
