Ca Dei Frati Rosa Dei Frati

A premium Italian Rose from the south of lake Garda

Until recently rosés haven't been widely made in Italy, but they're now being seen more widely, and producers are taking them more seriously as well. The care and attention put into this wine is deserving of the higher end price tag

Made from a blend of native Italian grapes, Groppello, Marmezino, Sangiovese and Barbera it's pale pink in colour with a touch of 'onion skin' orange. It has zesty and vibrant aromas of summer pudding and strawberries that follow through onto the dry, crisp, fruity and long palate.

The Ca' dei Frati estate situated near the southern shores of Lake Garda has been transformed over the last couple of decades by the Dal Cero family. The quality of their wines is attributable directly to Igino Dal Cero's obsession with detail. All their fruit is picked by hand; he ensures there is minimal skin contact as he wants to retain delicate perfumes and enhance the supple texture. In recent years they've substantially increased their vineyard holdings with some of the best sites in the area and honed their winemaking skills so that they're regarded as just about the best producer in Lugana.
