Grape Guide: Malvasia del Lazio

Malvasia del Lazio is the principle white grape variety found in Lazio. It is responsible for a number of the DOC and DOCG wines in the region.

In the relatively new Roma DOC, Castello di Banfi's Fontana Candida estate cultivates a small amount in order to blend with other grapes from the region.
