Made from a blend of local grape varieties, which flourish 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. The 25-year old vines yield 90 quintals (9,000kg) 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 hand-harvested grapes are picked at optimal ripeness.

Winery

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 was acquired in 1974 by Giulio Santarelli and in 1977, Giulio started acquiring further plots of land neighboring 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.
