This wine is made from 100% Roscetto, an ancient variety indigenous to the Montefiascone region of Lazio which Riccardo Cotarella has single-handedly saved from extinction. This grape's small, compact bunches are naturally high in flavor, which Cotarella discovered was best extracted by the use of dry ice during maceration, allowing for maximum flavor without adding color. The resulting wine is unforgettably substantial and elegant.

Tasting Notes

Medium gold in color, aromas of tropical fruits and sweet corn complement undertones of fresh herbs and vanilla. On the palate, this wine is lush and full-bodied, with an intriguing and lingering finish.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with hearty risottos, béchamel sauces, roasted game, and baba ghanoush.
