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. The Dal Cero family has transformed their Ca’ dei Frati property, situated on the southern shores of Lake Garda, 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 area of prime vineyard sites in 2008, they have over 200 hectares. This increase in quantity has been matched by an increase in quality, and today they remain the best producer in Lugana. The quality of the wines is attributable directly to Igino Dal Cero’s obsession with detail. All their fruit is 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 whites. 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 now 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 secret to the success of the Ca' dei Frati wines is their outstanding vineyards. Most producers in the zone overcrop and train the vines high. At Ca' dei Frati, the vines are trained low, newer vineyards have a higher density of planting, and yields are well below the average for the zone. Fruit for this wine came from two vineyards, 'I Frati' in Sirmione and 'La Tur' in Desenzano. The soils are a mixture of chalky clay, sand and lime. The vines are single and double Guyot trained. Grapes were hand picked and selected in the vineyards. Once at the winery, the grapes were destemmed and lightly pressed after a short period of skin contact to extract colour. The must was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks before remaining in tank on fine lees for six months before bottling and then a further two months in bottle before release.
