TASTING NOTE

A deep ruby colour and intense notes of blueberries, raspberry jam and wild herbs on the nose. The palate is rich and smooth with succulent red and black fruits and a touch of fig balsamic on the finish.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

The Ca dei Frati property, owned and run by the Dal Cero family is a lovely wine estate. As you enter the courtyard, the winery is on the left, 12 hectares of vineyards face you and the family home is on the right. Back in 1987 the family only had these 12 hectares of vineyards, but in 2008 they were in a position to purchase a large parcel of prime vineyard. This brought their holding to 140 hectares.

With this increase in size has come a correlative increase in quality of wines and they are widely recognised as one of the best producers in Lugana, which is a province east of Verona and bordering the Veneto winemaking region of Northeast Italy.

Marzemino, an indigenous grape to Northern Italy and Sangiovese are the main components of this wine with the addition of about 10% Cabernet Sauvignon to give a deeper body to the finished wine. After fermentation the wine was trasnferred to oak barriques for 14 months for malolactic conversion and maturation before maturing further in bottle for 10 months.
