Ca' dei Frati Brolettino Lugana 2021

The Ca' dei Frati 'Brolettino' is a superb white wine made from the Turbiana grape variety which is native to the Lugana wine region of Lombardy. Ca' dei Frati train their vines low, plant at a high density and reduce yields which allow them to produce concentrated wines with a distinctive sense of place. Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks. After this, half of the wine was transferred to small 225 litre barriques for six months, while the rest remained in stainless-steel tanks until the final blend was assembled. Pale gold in colour, Brolettino opens with aromas of stone fruits and a touch of vanilla spice from the oak ageing. The palate has rich peach characters, with a creamy, honeyed texture lifted by stony minerality. It is intense and concentrated through to the fresh finish.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
