  • Score: 86 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media The 2019 Frascati lifts up with spicy florals and hints of nectarine. It’s soft-textured with a pleasantly sweet display of ripe orchard fruits offset by saline-mineral tones. Hints of green apple and sour citrus linger as this tapers off with medium length. A blend of Malvasia di Candia, Malvasia del Lazio, Bombino, Chardonnay and Greco. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
