Description of Cà Dei Frati I Frati Lugana 2018

Cà Dei Frati I Frati Lugana 2018 (Trebbiano, Verdicchio and Trebbiano Di Soave)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Pale yellow colour.
  • Nose: An intense yet fresh bouquet of lemon, stone fruit, and a whisper of white flowers.
  • Mouth: A luxuriously rich flavour with excellent balance and firm tannins that encircle and nestle on the palate. Notes of ripe citrus and pineapple are complemented by almond and floral nuances. The finish is long and dry.

APPELLATION: Lugana Lombardia

WINERY: Cà dei Frati

Cà dei Frati is a small winery with history in the Lombardy region dating back to 1782. The winery finds pride in helping the native Trebbiano grape receive the recognition it deserves. These Trebbiano grapes were grown in the vineyards of Lugana, located in Northern Italy near the shores of lake Garda. The growing conditions are said to be extreme because of the clay soils, causing the older vines to struggle to yield fruit. These conditions create grapes with an incredible flavour balance that ultimately make sophisticated wines.

GRAPES: 100% Trebbiano Di Soave.

AGEING: Aged for a minimum 6 months on the lees in stainless steel tanks, then 2 months ageing in the bottle. Best enjoyed young.

PREPARATION: The grapes were hand-picked before being pressed in the cellar. The mixture is then refined and inoculated with selected yeasts. The alcoholic fermentation is temperature-controlled to 16°C.

PAIRING: Chicken, pork chops, vegetarian pasta, fish, or desserts.

RIGHT SERVING TEMPERATURE: 8-10°C

ALCOHOL: 13.5%

4/5

I tried it during a wine tasting.
Highlights the straw yellow color. This Cà dei Frati has aromas of pear and banana. It was light but tasted like blackberries.
The Ca Dei Frati I Frati Lugana goes well with rices.
