CANTO, the Cannellino di Frascati DOCG by Merumalia, is a complex wine from our century-old traditions. It has intense dried fruits and tropical aromas with a nice acidity. The taste is full-bodied and elegant. CANTO is a blend of Malvasia del Lazio and Bombino grapes that are grown on the north side of volcanic, rocky soil (mineral rich) of Castelli Romani, 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. In these conditions, the grape develop a noble rot (Botrytis Cinerea) that lends very particular sweety fragrances to our wine. After a slow fermentation, CANTO ages in French oak for at least 7 months and other 3 months in bottle.
