New item on the menu this week is the Frascati Superiore from Tenuta di Pietra Porzia.  Mostly malvasia grapes mixed with a little trebbiano, it’s ripe fruit, refreshing acidity and a nice long finish.  The rep introduced me to this wine conjuring a romantic scene “If you sat down outside a trattoria in Rome today, this is the wine they’d pour you.”

“Sold.”
