Ca dei Frati Ronchedone 2019 from 8wines
Cellar for up to 8 years. No need to decant before serving. The house and cellar of Ca Dei Frati was first mentioned as early as 1782, but the modern winery dates back to 1939 when Felice Dal Cero spotted the winemaking potential of the charming Lugana region on the shores of Lake Garda. Today the estate is still in the hands of the Dal Cero family who have transformed Ca Dei Frati into Lugana’s top winery with 200 hectares of prime vineyards. Ca dei Frati specialise in crafting complex whites and unusual reds from a blend of indigenous and international grape varieties. Ronchedone is composed of Marzemino and Sangiovese along with a small proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon grown in the Ronchedone and La Tür vineyards on the south bank of Lake Garda. The wine is vinified in stainless steel tanks and then aged in oak barrels for 14 months. The result is a deep, richly-flavoured red with attractive crushed berry notes and hints of dried herbs on the nose. The first sip reveals a medium body, smooth tannins and well-rounded texture with plenty of freshness and blackberry character on the long finish. The elegant and refined flavour profile makes this a great match for classic Italian dishes such as lasagne or a hearty ragu served with fresh pasta.
