Monte del Frà is located in the village of Custoza in the hills to the east of Lake Garda, only 15km from Verona. Founded in 1958 the winery owns over 140 hectares of vineyards.

 

80% Corvina veronese e Corvinone, 20% Rondinella.

 

Lena di Mezzo is an entirely terraced estate of 17.8 hectares that lies in the heart of Fumane, a splendid hilly zone with tufaceous, clay and limestone soils. The vineyard is 250 – 400 metres above sea level.

 

Gentle crushing and destemming, followed by temperature-controlled fermentation in  stainless steel vats with daily punching down of the cap of skins into the must so as to allow for the delicate extraction of colour and tannins.

 

Bright ruby red in the glass, the nose is of cherries and spice. Ripe and juicy palate with red fruits and hints of pepper –  extremely elegant and well balanced.
