The Wine of Castelli Romani, an amazing nectar.
Wine has always been a symbol of the italian culture and taste. The harmonious geography, and the fertility of the Castelli Romani territory, of volcanic origin, represent the best conditions for the production of quality wine, like the Frascati DOCG wine, exclusively white, produced in many types, and known all over the world, since Ancient Rome.
Since ancient times, wine production has always been a fundamental part of agriculture in Castelli Romani (Roman Castles) and Colli Albani (Alban Hills).
Despite a wine tradition that is still in part bulk wine or wine "of the house" (just think of the famous Frascatan fraschette where you bring your own food and you are served with genuine fresh wine from the farm of the owner), the production of DOC wines in the territory of the Roman countryside is really meaningful, and how not to mention the DOC Colli Albani wine , the DOC Marino wine, the DOC Monte Compatri - Colonna and obviously the Frascati DOC strictly white, made of Malvasia di Candia, Trebbiano and Malvasia from Lazio.
Not to mention the Frascati Superiore, a white wine with a DOCG designation, well-known and appreciated nationally and internationally.
Castelli Romani, has an extremely varied wine production, with white, rosé, and red, with different types, from the amiable, to the dry, the sparkling and the "novello" red. This is due among other things to the great extension, and therefore tradition, of territories within the area of ??the Roman countryside that have a tradition in wine productio: from Frascati, to Nemi, to Castel Gandolfo, Zagarolo, Velletri, many many towns have their wine production, among which the famous town of Marino, with the "fountains that give wine", as recited in the famous song "Na gita a li Castelli", sung by italian singer Ettore Petrolini.
