The I Frati Lugana DOC from Cà dei Frati is the pride and joy of the estate and is made from the local Turbiana (Trebbiano) grape variety.
In the glass this wine shines in a clear straw yellow with golden highlights. The bouquet is wonderfully multi-faceted - at a young age the nose is pampered with fine notes of white flowers, juicy apricots and almonds. If time is given to this Italian white wine, mineral and spicy nuances as well as caramelised aromas are added. On the palate this wine is wonderfully full-bodied with a vital and exuberant acidity. The spicy essence is perfectly integrated into the straight, mineral and elegant body. This white wine convinces with its rich finesse, complex personality and its expressive variety of aromas.
Vinification of Cà dei Frati Lugana
After careful harvesting, the grapes are immediately brought to the Cà dei Frati winery. The must is fermented in stainless steel tanks and left on the fine yeast for at least 6 months (sur Lie ageing). Finally this wine matures for further 2 months on the bottle.
