The Lenotti family has been producing wines in the Veneto since 1906 in Bardolino, the area around Verona and Lake Garda. Since 1968, the farm has been bottling and selling the wines directly with the main goal of supplying clients with high quality products at competitive prices. At present the estate is run by the Giancarlo Lenotti (oenologist , production manager and facilities supervisor), Marina Lenotti (sales manager for the home market), and their son Claudio (export manager). They export 90% of their production.
Intense aromas of ripe and dried red and black fruit, raspberries, fig and plums. Spice and woodsy notes from oak ageing. The palate is rich and full, warming and velvety. This wine benefits from decanting, allowing it to breath and open up, about an hour before savouring. Already adequately aged and ready for consumption, but that can be kept for several years without any problem. Store in a fresh, dry and dark place. This is a wine roast meats and game or to sip at the end of the meal with mature cheeses.
Produced in extremely limited quantities only in the best years from the best red grapes of Valpolicella ( 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella and 5% Oseleta). The grapes are from the classic Valpolicella north of Verona in the hills near the village of S. Ambrogio di Valpolicella. The soil here is made up of clay and limestone of glacial and alluvial origin. The wine is produced in extremely limited quantities only in the best years from the best red grapes of Valpolicella ( 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella and 5% Oseleta) which are left to dry out in crates until late winter and are traditionally vinified in January-February. The grapes are pressed and slowly fermented (sometimes fermentation lasts a few months). The wine ages in oak wood butts for 3-5 years before bottling.
