Ca dei Frati Brolettino Lugana DOC

2017

In a Nutshell

Some time in barrel gives this Lugana extra depth.

Tasting Notes

Pale golden in colour, this wine opens with aromas of stone fruits and a touch of vanilla spice from the oak ageing. The palate has rich peach characters, with a creamy, honeyed texture lifted by stony minerality. Intense and concentrated through to the fresh finish.

Production Notes

Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks after which half of the wine was transferred to small 225 litre barriques for six months, while the rest spent that time in stainless steel. The wine was then blended together.
