2023 ‘I Frati’ Lugana, Ca dei Frati, Lombardia

£23.00 inc. VAT

Considered to be one of the best producers in Lugana owning a substantial area of vineyards, Cà dei Frati produces exceptional quality wines. Excellent depth, layers of flavour ranging from white peach to almond blossom and lemons.

This wine is made from grapes grown on 10 to 35 year old vines. In Lugana, the Turbiana grape is grown on the glacial soils just to the south of Lake Garda. The warmer days give wines with more weight and intensity than those from 60 kilometres to the east. The cool nights, thanks to the moderating influence of Lake Garda, ensures the grapes retain aroma and acidity.

The must was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks to maximise its fresh fruit character. The wine then remained on lees in stainless-steel tanks for six months before spending two months ageing in bottle before release.

Pale yellow in colour with a concentrated but fresh perfume of white flowers, peaches and ripe lemons. On the palate it has excellent depth and balance, with lovely richness and a crisp, lively finish.
