Canto Cannellino di Frascati DOCG
CANTO, the Cannellino di Frascati DOCG by Merumalia, is a blend of Malvasia del Lazio and Bombino grapes that are grown respecting the nature and the environment. During maturation period, the vine fruit branches, destined for this wine, are pruned and left on the plants to dry out. The dried grapes are harvested to produce a slightly sweet wine, which ages in barrels for at least 6 months. It pairs beautifully with aged cheeses and dry pastries.
