Fabio Contato

Lugana D.O.P.

Fabio Contato  - Cà Maiol

The Fabio Contato Lugana bears the name of Walter Contato’s son and is the Estate’s premium quality wine. It is left to mature for 6 months in 225-liter French oak barriques, followed by a further 6 months’ bottle-aging.

Produced in extremely limited quantities, it is the result of many years’ experience and seeks to underline the full potential that the wines of Lugana are capable of attaining. In this case, its aging process highlights the evolution of a wine of great structure, obtained from the Estate’s oldest vineyards (with their extremely low yields).
