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. Warm days and cool nights give this wine superb weight and intensity and a fresh fruit character.
