Product Profile Sheet 750ml
For three generations the Maculan family has been selecting and vinifying the best grapes in Breganze, an enchanting village at the foot of the Alps in Italy’s Veneto region. While the surrounding mountains protect the area from cold winds, creating a perfect microclimate for the cultivation of wine grapes, it is Fausto Maculan’s drive and commitment that sets these wines apart and distinguishes Maculan as an innovative, dynamic winery. Continually at the forefront of any dessert wine discussion, Fausto Maculan has received numerous accolades from the world’s most esteemed wine critics.
“The 2011 Fratta boasts the bolder, more extracted and fleshier style that has made this IGT blend of 35% Merlot and 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, an icon of Italian wine. Perhaps the complexity is not as articulate in the warmer 2011 vintage, but the intensity of fruit and the sheer pleasure factor remain absolutely impressive. It struck me that Fratta is a little outdated stylistically speaking in the current world of Italian wine that prizes streamlined elegance. But timeless classics do exist and Fratta is one of them.” – Monica Larner, December 2014
