C`a dei Frati I Frati Lugana 2018
|Region||Italy, Lombardy, Lugana|
|Brand||C`a dei Frati|
Intended to be consumed as a vintage, it expresses the best of itself many years after bottling. When young, it is fresh, linear and furnished with great sophistication and elegance with delicate hints of white balsamic flowers, traces of apricot and almond. Time enables it to evolve, allowing the mineral notes to be expressed with greater determination, thereby acquiring its complexity with traces of iodates, spices and candied fruit. In the mouth, it is capable of enveloping the whole palate thanks to a significant savoury essence, accompanied by strong, exuberant acidity. When young, a serving temperature of around 10 degrees is preferable, with cold or warm - but delicate - starters and to accompany fish dishes, boiled, steamed or grilled.
Aromas of exotic fruit, white spring flower, citrus and a whiff of tomato vine lift out of the glass. Vibrant and linear, the savory palate doles out juicy grapefruit, spiced apricot and a hint of pineapple alongside crisp acidity.
