Maculan Fratta 2004


SKU 1166200043


Fratta is dense and concentrated, with a dark ruby red color and intense fruity notes of crushed blackberry, dried prunes, vanilla, spice, licorice, chocolate, and leather. Soft, full bodied and well balanced, Fratta offers chewy, round tannins beautifully integrated with an elegant minerality and framed by a juicy long finish. This is a truly opulent and seductive red, a classy wine for unique occasions. Recommended with rich meat dishes, game and aged cheeses.

Wine AdvocateThe 2004 Fratta (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot) is almost as outstanding. It reveals a more herbal profile, along with masses of jammy fruit and a powerful structure that cries out desperately for bottle age and patience. In time it might rival the Crosara Breganze. Anticipated maturity: 2009- 2019.

Wine SpectatorRipe, with currant and strong beef notes that follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine, fruit- and mineral-coated tannins and a long finish. Needs some time. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best after 2009. 2,500 cases made.
