2017 Poggio Le Volpi Epos - Frascati Malvasia di Candia and Malvasia del Lazio and Trebbiano • 0.75 l • Bianco

Straw yellow with green reflections. Intense and complex aromas, the taste of sweet almonds blends with an interesting tropical bouquet thanks to the particular cultivation of the vine. The late vintage gives soft but tangy flavours.

Climate:
The proximity of the Tyrrhenian Sea to the west is also important; cool sea breezes temper the drier, warmer temperatures on the coast, while the mountainous area is subject to various macroclimates despite being protected by the Apennines from the cold winds coming from the northeast.

Underground:
fertile and porous (well-drained) land. Nourishment for the grapes is provided by lava and tufa soils, rich in potassium.
