Cà dei Frati ‘I Frati’ Trebbiano di Lugana 2017
The company Ca ‘dei Frati was established in 1782 according to historical documentation that refers to “a house with a cellar located in Lugana in the keep of Sermion called the place of the Friars”. In 1939 Felice Dal Cero the winemaker moved to that house immediately seeing the potential of the area. After thirty years of work in the vineyard and in the cellar, in 1969, his son Pietro battled for part in the establishment of Lugana DOC shortly following the bottling of his first Lugana Casa dei Frati label, later called Ca ‘dei Frati. This fascinating wine has aromas of white flowers, almond, apricot and balsamic. On the palate it is fresh, exuberant, profoundly full-bodied with a rich and substantial persistence. Drink now or hold for 3-5 years.
White Ragu with Casarecce completes the evening.
