Wine

Ronchedone, Ca dei Frati, 75cl

£26.95

The Dal Cero family has transformed their Ca dei Frati property into a model Italian estate over the past two decades. Back in 1987, they had 12 hectares of vineyard but now, following the purchase of a large chunk of prime vineyard in 2008, they have over 100. This increase in quantity has been matched by an increase in quality, and today they remain the best producers in Lugana. Marzemino and Sangiovese are the main grapes for Ronchedone, together with a maximum of 10% of Cabernet Sauvignon. Maceration and fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with extended skin contact. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrique where the wine remained for 14 months, followed by 10 months in bottle. Lovely depth of colour and a ripe, vibrantly fruity nose, with perfumes of ripe blueberries, freshly made jam, a touch of balsam and some herbal notes which follow through to the rounded, red and black fruit palate. Clean and savoury on the palate, with rounded tannins and a freshness on the finish which is typical of the area.
