ABOUT: The success of the Cà dei Frati wines is not only attributed to their outstanding vineyards, but to the Dal Cero’s attention to detail and quality. All grapes are hand picked with no skin contact in order to maintain the delicate perfumes of the Turbiana grape (related to Verdicchio). The vineyards are located just south of Lake Garda on glacial soils. The vines for Brolettino were planted in 1971. After fermentation in stainless steel tanks half of this wine was transferred to 225litre oak barriques for six months while the rest remained in stainless steel until final blending.
