Lugana I Frati DOC - 0,375 lt. - Cá dei Frati
A 14-month long aging in barrique and low yields give this wine its intense, brilliant, ruby red. Its aromas are reminiscent of berries, a little mint and licorice; soft tannins and a juicy structure with a silky and elegant finish complete the tableau.
This wine pairs well with game, roasts, dark meats and hard cheeses.
On the palate, it has a velvety, extremely berry-like effect like a French Burgundy, and tones of fresh elderberries and wild cherries give the subtle fruit sweetness a succinct, finely-spiced structure.
"Frauriegl" Lagrein has a seductive abundance of fruit ranging wild berries and elderberries to black cherries and cocoa beans.
