Review

Belonging to the excellent Santa Margherita wine group, Cà Maiol is one of the most solid and extensive wineries in Lugana. This is due to the Contato family, who founded the winery fifty years ago and continues to head it today with siblings Fabio and Patrizia. A winery dedicated to hospitality with an across-the-board approach to wine-making, Cà Maiol has combined commercial expansion and advanced research in the vineyard, diversifying the range and applying painstaking attention to the rows, with partial conversion to organic.

For the Contaldos, 160 hectares and over a million and a half bottles does not mean compromises with quality. On the contrary, it seems that the extension of production has a strong link with qualitative research. The Lugana di Cà Maiol are, it must be said, for all tastes. There is the vertical and sharp version, strictly vintage and in steel only. The Molin is one of the most awarded and appreciated Luganas. And then there is the more creamy, sumptuous and opulent Lugana, which finds its home of choice in wood. This is the Fabio Contato: a Trebbiano di Lugana taken to the nth degree in its own ambitions of long-lived and structured grapes.

Aged 6 months in steel, 6 months in barrique and 6 months in bottle, it takes its name from the first-born of the Walter Contato family and represents the winery’s best qualitative expression. Intense straw yellow with gold reflections, the bouquet exhibits great complexity and breadth of aromas, with cedar, yellow melon, slightly spicy touches of cumin and ginger. The evolution of the wine offers hints of pearl barley, yellow peach and lavender. Soft and enveloping on the palate, it had a sapidity that interacts perfectly with its acidity and softness, reminiscent of aromas of yellow raspberries and saffron. Long-lasting persistence, it is a Lugana that goes beyond Lugana.
