If you’ve ever been to Rome and enjoyed the crisp vino bianco dispensed by the pitcher-load with the antipasto course in the outdoor cantinas, odds are that the wine you were sipping was a Frascati. This week, do what the Romans do with the delectable 2011 Frascati Superiore Regillo, produced by the respected Tenuta di Pietra Porzia in the rolling hills just south-east of Rome. Since most Frascati does not travel well, it is a genuine treat to find one on this side of the Coliseum that captures the spirit of the Roman cafes with such irresistible brio. Made from Malvasia, Grechetto, and an indigenous grape called Bombino, this wine brims with fresh notes of honeydew and cantaloupe melon, cut pear, and light honey almonds. The texture is spot on for Frascati, lusciously fresh, smooth, and sensuous, with a clear, crisp finish of palate refreshing acidity. Enjoy this with steamed mussels, grilled fish and poultry, and of course, antipasto of all types.
