Primo, the Frascati Superiore DOCG Riserva by Merumalia, on the nose has wide and involving fruity aromas. A strong, long-standing minerality. pervade the mouth. The taste is full-bodied and elegant, with minerality explosion. Differently from PRIMO, the RISERVA is produced with a special selection of Malvasia del Lazio grapes that benefit of more sunny hours. The autochthonous grapes are grown on the north side of volcanic, rocky soil (mineral rich) of Castelli Romani, respecting the nature and the environment. The PRIMO RISERVA grapes production has an upper limit of 8 tons per hectar (much less then permitted). Grapes are pressed very softly in inert environment. To limit the generation of sulphites, the fermentation initiated with selected yeast, is thermally controlled in inox containers. The wine is ageing in inox and in bottle for at least 12 months.
