A deep, dark wine showing a vibrant, fruit-forward bouquet with aromas 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. The clean, savoury character is balanced with rounded tannins and a freshness on the finish which is typical of the area.

The Domaine
The Dal Cero family has transformed their Cà 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 160 hectares. This increase in quantity has been matched by an increase in quality, and today they remain the best as well as the biggest producers in Lugana. The family have recently retraced their roots back to the eastern province of Verona to the Lessinia hills to create their interpretation of Amarone.

Food Pairing
A shoulder of lamb would be just perfect but it would also be delicious with a simple pizza.
