pepper and dried lavender notes, with flavors of mulled fruit, tobacco and smoke....? I'm sorry, I don't get any of that. I can tell you this is a delicious quality tasting wine.Fuller than a Pino,lighter than a Chianti.WILL BUY AGAIN.
Good wine though I think 92 points may be a bit higher than I would have rated it
Wine Maker Notes
The heart of Monte del Frà is located in the village of Custoza on the morainic hills of Lake Garda, only 15km from Verona. The controlled management of raw materials and the implementation of winemaking procedures using the most modern techniques to preserve the characteristics of the grapes, guarantee Monte del Frà's ability to produce prestigious wines.
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.
