"A high level Rosé with a great capacity to surprise with its delicate authority". Ca’ dei Frati has been family-owned and run for three generations. It all began when patriarch Felice Dal Cero saved enough money to buy a small farm in the 1930s. Over the years, the family repeatedly invested in new vineyards. Today, all their wines are made from estate-grown grapes.
This Lake Garda estate is named Ca’ dei Frati as it translates as “friar house" because it was once owned by monks who grew grapes there. Soil types play a fundamental role in crafting Ca’ dei Frati’s fresh, fruit- and mineral-driven wines. Lake Garda was created during the Eocene era, some 35 million years ago, by a melting glacier. As the melting ice flowed south from what we now call the Italian Alps, it also brought glacial deposits. Today, these rocky and pebbly “morainic” soils are ideal for the production of fine wine. Because the roots of the vines have to work harder to find the water table in the well-drained soils, their fruit production becomes more vigorous. As a result, the grapes are richer in aroma and flavor, with more complexity and depth.*
