Cà dei Frati Lugana “Brolettino”

Italy, Lombardy

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.

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. 2013 turned out to be fine vintage following a long ripening period in the autumn. The wine is a blend of barrel and tank fermentation.
