Lugana Ca’ dei Frati 2021


(5 customer reviews)

This wine embodies the passion and dedication to the craft of winemaking that has made Ca’ dei Frati one of the top producers in Italy.  A bright platinum hue with a kiss of pale gold. The aromas are led by a collection of citrus flavours and stone fruit, all wrapped in a layer of white florals and spice.

Don’t let the discombobulating name worry you because as soon as you sip this wonderful Italian white, all will be right with the world.  Crafted from 100% Turbiana (a rare, indigenous white grape) grown around the Lake Garda area of Veneto, this is stunningly aromatic, all apricot stone, nectarine and quince, followed by ultra-zesty acidity, a beautifully balanced, succulent mouthfeel and a long, peachy finish.

Consumed young it is fresh and straighforward, refined and elegant with delicate notes of white flowers and aromatic herbs with a hint of apricot and almond. It evolves through time firmly expressing mineral notes. The wine acquires complexity with a touch of iodine, spices and candle fruit. On the palate it is concentrated, with a lively fresh finish. When consumed young it should be served at around 10C The ideal accompaniment for delicate cold or warm starters steamed or grilled fish.
