Tasting Notes

A dry red wine with beautiful aromas of cherries, plums and liquorice; spices such as pepper and cinnamon; hints of undergrowth. Dry, fruity flavour, pleasantly well-balanced. Aged in French oak casks for at least 18 months before bottling.

Perfect with red and white meats and roast poultry dishes. Delicious with roasts, stews or braised meats and with hard cheeses.

About the Winery

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. Scarnocchio is a very old terraced vineyard that lies inside this holding at an altitiude of over 380 metres above sea level.
