In the area of Lugana, where the temperature is tempered by the nearby Lake Garda, the domain Pratello (housed in a papal villa) has 100 hectares. In addition to olives and fruits, grapes are grown on 45 hectares, from which Vincenzo Bertola produces distinctive wines. For his refreshing Catulliano 2016, he used only Turbiana, a white variety that has a genetic similarity to the Verdicchio of the brands. The wine smells a bit floral and tastes of slightly spicy white fruits (which I combined a little with stews) and a pinch of spices. I already wrote it: character. The big Hamersma 2018 fixed value for several years of harvest. The 2016 slightly easier and darteler than the previous crop year. Apple of a pate, sweet and sour, tamed wild peach bitters small, very slightly grapey juice and white pepper sneezed tip.
