Corvina & Corvinone 80%; Rondinella 20%

The Lena di Mezzo estate is a terraced vineyard of 18 hectares located between 250 and 350 metres above sea level. This is a hilly region in the centre of Fumane, 20kms north west of Verona. The clay / limestone soils slow the ripening of the grapes ensuring they have higher acidity.

After picking, the grapes are left to dry for a few days before destemming and gentle crushing. Fermentation is in temperature controlled, conical, stainless steel vats. Extraction of colour and flavours is augmented by daily punching down of the cap. As a Ripasso wine, the skins from the fermentation of Amarone wine are added at the end of the first fermentation, which then induces a further slow fermentation which adds more colour, flavour and tannins to the wine. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged in large French oak casks for 18 months, then bottle aged for at least 5 months before release.

"Fra" in the company name is Venetian for Friar: a reference to the monastery that was established on the site in 1492. The first reference to wine production on the site is a lease document from 1619 which granted the Friars rights to establish vineyards on adjacent lands. The Bonomo family have owned the estate since 1958. Now in the hands of the third generation, Marica, Silvia and Massimo Bonomo respect the family traditions of producing wine that reflects the characteristics of the land and traditional grape varieties and ensuring the application of sustainable practices in the vineyards and winery.
