Description

This Lugana is expressive yet delicate, with pear, apple and floral jasmine aromas on the nose. There’s a pithy almond character, and a lees-derived creaminess on the palate, adding a versatile and food-friendly dimension to the wine. A refreshing core of salinity and zesty acidity lingers on the palate, long into the finish. Try it with prawn linguine, grilled fish or hard cheeses. Ready to drink now.

About this WINE

Monte del Fra

Monte del Fra

Monte del Frà translates as ;Hill of Monks; and is located in the heart of the Bianco di Custoza DOC. It now consists of over 65 hectares of vineyards is owned and run by brothers Eligio and Claudio Bonomo. It is one of the most progressive and dynamic producers in the region and has been particularly innovative in its adoption of modern viticultural techniques.

Eligio Bonomo was the first producer in the region to retrain the traditionally 1.6m high cordon vines to lower-trained, single guyot systems. In the winery the Bonomos use thoroughly modern, clean and temperature-controlled fermentation and storage facilities in order to preserve the aromatic freshness in their wines. They produce very good-quality wines which are clean, display excellent purity of fruit and are elegant and well balanced.
