Cà dei Frati Lugana “Brolettino”

Italy | 2019

£26 a bottle

One of Lombardy’s finest – bright stone fruit flavours, a hint of honey and fine mineral notes – all laced together with lifted, refreshing acidity. Nice, gentle vanilla oak flavours and framework polishes off the wine. Deceptive strength and intensity here – and very individual (like so many Italian wines!).

Origin

In Lugana, the Turbiana grape is grown on the glacial soils just to the south of Lake Garda, where higher diurnal temperature ranges than nearby areas add extra weight and flavour to the grapes, combined with fresh acidity and vibrant aromatics.

Producer

Cà dei Frati are possibly Lugana’s finest wine estate Today they own 160 hectares of prime vineyard sites in and around Lake Garda. In general, the estate has higher vine density and lower yields than any of their neighbours.

Grape Variety

100% Turbiana.

The Brolettino cuvee comes from some of the oldest vines – over 40 years old – and grown on weathered clay soils. The wine is made from 100% Turbiana – a local grape of very high quality. The wine is fermented in stainless steel, then transferred to small French oak barriques for 6 months ageing, before resting in bottle for two months prior to release.

Food Match

Traditionally served with veal and a cream sauce; will work just as well with chicken supreme or pork chop, served with quite a robust sauce – including a touch of grain mustard. A good vegetarian option is vegetable lasagne.
