Ca' dei Frati Rosa dei Frati 2021
Situated on the southern shores of Lake Garda, Ca' dei Frati has been transformed by the Dal Cero family into a model Italian estate over the past two decades. The quality of their wines is attributable directly to Igino Dal Cero’s obsession with detail. All grapes are picked by hand and he ensures there is no skin contact as he wants to retain the delicate perfumes and enhance the supple texture of the wine. Igino has changed his mind on malolactic fermentation and now inhibits it in order to give the wine the lift he feels it benefits from. He is also convinced that a period of ageing on lees post fermentation gives greater richness on the palate as well as the wonderful flintiness on the nose that makes his wine so Burgundian in character. The Ca' dei Frati ‘Rosa dei Frati’ is pale pink in colour, dry, scented and stunning. A blend of Groppello, Marzemino, Sangiovese and Barbera, there is no better wine to bring to mind summer on the shores of Lake Garda. Rosa dei Frati is light pink in colour with a touch of 'onion skin' orange. Zesty, fresh and vibrant with aromas of summer pudding and strawberries, it is perfectly balanced with a lovely refreshing finish.
