Frizzante from Dracula's castle
Prince Kretzulesco of the ancient house of Bassarabas, a longtime friend of Italy's King Umberto I, laid the foundation for the frizzante from Veneto with the resounding title Castle of Dracula in 1899. The roots of the prince can be traced from the late ancient Roman province of Dacia, through medieval Wallachia, to the Italian Veneto of the time of the Ressortimento. Wallachia is also the origin of the idea of naming the frizzante Castle of Dracula. An ancestor of the prince was none other than Vlad III Tepec, better known as Count Dracula.
The Marsecco - a unique Frizzante from the Veneto region
Castle of Dracula's Frizzante is made from the Marzemino grape, which explains the portmanteau word Marsecco. The vines for the fine spumante are still grown on the family estate between Venice and Treviso.
