location and characteristics of the vineyard

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, 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.

average altitude

250/400 metres above sea level.

training system and plant density

Only the Pergola training system is used, with a maximum yield of 12,000 kg per hectare. The choice of this training system was made to allow the Corvina Veronese and Corvinone grape varieties to have perfect exposure to the sun.


The grapes are picked around the first ten days of October.


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 so as to allow for the delicate extraction of colour (anthocyanins) and all those well-structured and aromatic polyphenols that are specific to the grapes and the terroir of Fumane.
