Reinventing Frascati

  1. Tom,
    That’s crazy- who would have thought you could lay down a Frascati? I enjoy the wine already, but really look forward to finding one of Mauro’s wines. They’ve “reinvented” Trebbiano – see Masciarelli’s Castello Semivicoli (tre bicchieri 3 years in a row), but what about one of my other favorites, Orvieto? Have you run across any producers who are taking this wine to the levels Merz is accomplishing with his Frascati? Mark

    1. I’d say the 2006 has seen its best days. Most Frascati are for drinking from one to two years. There are a few rare producers that make ageworthy examples, but even for them, 2006 is getting old.
