Lena di Mezzo is an entirely terraced estate of 18 hectares that lies in the heart of Fumane, a splendid hilly zone with tophaceous, clay and limestone soils, in which we have sought to express to the full the interdependence between the terroir and the indigenous grape varieties that are the unique heritage of the area around Verona Vinification: Gentle crushing and destemming, followed by temperature controlled fermentation in small truncated cone-shaped stainless steel vats with daily punching down of the cap of skins into the must to allow the delicate extraction of all the complex range of polyphenols that are specific to the grapes and the terroir of Fumane. After the first and the malolactic fermentation wine stays at least 12 months in 30 hl oak casks and left in bottles for at least 5/6 months.
