Ca’ dei Frati
The Dal Cero family has transformed their Ca' dei Frati property, situated on the southern shores of Lake Garda, into a model Italian estate over the past two decades. The quality of the wines is attributable directly to Igino Dal Cero's obsession with detail. All their fruit is picked by hand and he ensures there is no skin contact as he wants to retain the delicate perfumes and enhance the supple texture of the whites. He is now convinced that a period of ageing on lees post fermentation gives him greater richness on the palate as well as the wonderful flintiness on the nose that makes his wine so Burgundian in character.
