Description

Ca dei Frati I Frati Lugana DOC 2021

100% Turbiana (native variety). The fruit for this wine comes from the vineyards of Lombardy that stretch along the southern shore of Lake Garda. The vines grow in clay and limestone soils. 

Taste profile: Ca Dei Frati I Frati Lugana DOC is a zesty, refreshing and sophisticated white. We can't talk about Lugana without mentioning Ca dei Frati's flagship wine. When drunk young, the wine is fresh, linear and elegant with delicate hints of white balsamic flowers, traces of apricot and almond. As it evolves with time, the wine begins to express greater mineral notes and acquires complex traces of iodates, spices and candied fruit. The dry and medium-bodied palate is enveloping thanks to its savoury essence and has a juicy acidity.

Winemaking process: Vinification in stainless steel. Ages on fine lees for 6 months in stainless steel and a following 2 months in bottle.
