“Dry, fresh and zippy, this incredible wine from the outskirts of Rome turns the Frascati region on its head. With a history of winemaking since the 5th century BC, the region’s wines are predominantly made by large coops – decent but not all that memorable. Casale Marchese upends all that, crafting incredibly delicious Frascati that is VERY affordable. White flowers, citrus, hint of stone fruits on the nose, fresh clean on the palate with a terrific core of tightly knit fruit – Macon like in a way – zero oak and lovely minerality and acidity. A perfect summer white,
serve it with salads, shrimp chilled, grilled or scampi, all kinds of seafood, pasta and risotto. This wine brings back great memories from my early days in the food and wine biz – hope you’ll love it as much as I do!” Cheers! -Chris Cree MW, Cree Wine Co.

Casale Marchese is a historic estate in Frascati, Rome’s local white wine town located just thirty minutes outside of the city to its southwest. The estate was built in the middle ages at the site of two ancient Roman cisterns. During the Renaissance it was owned by a Marquis (hence Casale Marchese, House of the Marquis). Since 1713, the estate has been owned by the Carletti family.

In an area where one finds many industrially produced white wines, Casale Marchese is among a few wineries which focus on quality. Their vines for the Frascati average 40 years of age, and are located in a prized area within the appellation, home of hillside vineyards with volcanic soil which help to impart a find underlying minerality to the wines. All of their vineyards are estate-owned, and are farmed sustainably. All of their grapes are hand-harvested.
