Ca dei Frati I Frati Lugana DOC

2016

In a Nutshell

Absolutely fantastic Lugana from Ca dei Frati's oustanding vineyard sites.

Tasting Notes

Light 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 a lovely honeyed richness and a crisp, lively finish. Outstanding.

Production Notes

The must was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and unoaked to maximise its fresh fruit character. The wine remained on the lees in stainless steel tanks for six months before bottling.

Press Quotes & Awards

Lugana is the name of a white wine and also the region in which it is made, on the banks of Lake Garda in Lombardy. Using the Turbiana grape, whose synonyms include Trebbiano di Lugana and Verdicchio, this is the very finest wine from the very finest winery in the region and you simply must taste it if you adore sophisticated, dry, hauntingly pure white wine.

Matthew Jukes, “The very finest example of the Turbiana grape among other superb wines today!”, The Daily Mail/MatthewJukes.com, 26 August 2017

Excellent little edge of struck match on really racy fruit. Fine and steely and the measure of any white wine anywhere. Great stuff! Lime and stones and purity. 17+ points
