Ca' dei Frati Brolettino Lugana 2018

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.

Organic Vines in Vineyard

It is estimated that there are more than 10,000 grape varieties in present commercial production, yet this probably includes the same grapes under other names. With the increase of DNA fingerprinting it is thought that the real number might come down closer to 5,000.
