Wine "I Frati" - pride producer Ca Dei Frati, which fully expresses the tradition and economy, and the region in the field of winemaking. Wine is made from grapes Trebbiano di Lugana, grown on limestone and clay soils in Lugano, near Lake Garda, on the peninsula of Sirmione. Age of vines varies from 10 to 35 years. Mild maritime climate allows you to collect grapes rather late. Berries done manually. Fermentation takes place under carefully controlled temperature in steel tanks. Then the wine is aged on the lees for six months, and after - as many more in bottles. Potential wine storage - 3 years.
Winery Ca Dei Frati was founded by Italian monks in the end of the XVIII century, they also started breeding the famous local grape varieties Lugano. A century with a small estate acquired Dal Cero family, whose descendants still own this famous farm. Today, the family Dal Cero has 61 hectares of land on which are cultivated only autochthonous grapes and, above all, the white variety Trebbiano di Lugana. It Domenico Dal Cero managed to breathe new life into the estate, even though it cost him considerable expenses.
On each bottle of Ca dei Frati we can see the ornate coat of arms in the old style - a legacy of the monks, who belongs to the right of superiority in the cultivation of Trebbiano di Lugana. The wines from this grape are obtained especially fresh, juicy, unexpectedly strong and powerful that repeatedly noted by many wine critics.
