Lugana ‘Fabio Contato’ Ca’ Maiol DOP
Lugana “Fabio Contato” is the spearhead of Cà Maiol winery, a historic stronghold of Lugana, near Lake Garda. It is left to mature for 6 months in 225-litre French oak barriques, followed by a further 6 months’ bottle-aging. A great expression that refines in barrique and in bottle and then presents itself to the glass with a wide and harmonious bouquet, with melon, citrus, ginger and aromatic herbs contours, it gives life to a full, pulpy and enveloping sip with beautiful acid vein.

Fabio Contato Rosso DOP
This red from the Valtènesi is the result of the same philosophy of production as the Lugana Fabio Contato. Here again, Fabio has “added his signature” to the wine that represents the highest possible level of quality.
The product stems from a strict selection of bunches in our historic vineyards in the Valtènesi. The grapes are harvested by hand in the last few weeks of October and are then left to dry in small crates in a room with controlled humidity for approximately 2 months. The wine then matures in French oak barriques for about 24 months. It is a highly expressive wine, with concentrated structure and an extremely long aftertaste.
|Grape variety:||Groppello, Sangiovese, Barbera and Marzemino|
|Color:||Vivid ruby in evolution.|
|Nose:||The bouquet offers secondary aromas in evolution of blackberry briars, laurel and light nuances of geranium. Shades of tamarind and graphite in the second stage.|
|Mouth:||Full and rounded, tannins well-integrated with the fruit component and the flavor is brought out with an acidic vein that connects the whole.|
|Alcohol volume:||14% Vol|
|Serving temperature:||16 – 18° C|
|Pairing:||Important dishes of red meats, wild fowl, well-seasoned hard cheeses.|
