Wine from Casale Marchese at Rome Cavalieri

After walking and walking and more walking today, we decided to take a taxi back to the hotel. Staying at the Rome Cavalleri definitely has its highlights. One of the hotel restaurants is located on level -1. Terry thought that using the numeral -1 on the elevator was great. The numbers actually started at -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3 and on up to the top floor.

The hallway outside of the restaurant has windows facing the restaurant and the other side faces outside. The halfway ceiling is lit with starlight lights. The restaurant is elegant and includes impeccable service. Many of the staff members have a good command of the English language. The large carpeted room has wall sconces lighting and each table has a white tablecloth.

The main menu is not too long but covers a range of foods including salads, soups, meat, fish and pasta. A wine menu is also available. A separate menu for dessert arrives at the end of the menu.

The Lazio wine region  doesn’t seem to have a large market share of wines in Rome. Frascati is and should be on wine menus. The fruit forward white is drinkable by itself and pairs well with lighter foods. This is our second day of enjoying Frascati.  Last nights’ Frasacti Superiore 10 was from Casale Marchese. This Frascati tasted a bit sweeter than those tasted yesterday.

We had a bean soup appetizer. There were bits of bacon in the soup that gave a salty taste. The sweetness of the Frascati paired well with the saltiness of the soup. Terry’s entrée was fish with Buffalo mozzarella. The Frascati actually gave a sweetness to the entrée.

The 2010 Frascati was fruity with pear, peach and a bit of the pineapple, and melon on the taste. There was sweetness on the taste. Casale Marchese is located in  the Frascati DOC area.

While visiting Italy make sure you try Italian wine varietals you haven’t tried before.

Cheers! Kathy & Terry
