About Mezzacorona Wines, Dolomites in Italy
WINES FROM THE ITALIAN ALPS
Mezzacorona lies at the foot of the majestic Italian Dolomites. Its vineyards with pergola trellising, characteristic of the region, run from Lake Garda to the foothills of the towering Dolomites. A fresh and wild breeze blows from the over 400 lakes and numerous glaciers of the surrounding mountains, peaking at over 9,000 feet.
Thanks to a spectrum of microclimates, ranging from Mediterranean and Alpine, and profiting from over a century of winemaking experience, Mezzacorona planted varietals in the zones best tailored to the needs of each varietal, allowing them to flaunt the aromas and flavour of their terroir.
Through state-of-the-art facilities and modern winemaking techniques, Mezzacorona offers to the final consumer 100% single varietal wines characterized by all the vivid elegance and crispiness typical of the Italian Dolomites.
Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay are dominant in the Dolomites. They are well known for their floral tones, exotic fruit, ripe aromas and silky smoothness on the palate. Mezzacorona is the largest Italian estate producer of these two varietals.
Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon also have a long history of cultivation in the region. They are vinified in such a way that the varietals’ flavors of forest berries, chocolate and toasted almond are preserved.
As the winemakers intended, these wines are crafted to be a perfect complement to Italian and International cuisine.
Mezzacorona constantly receives strong ratings, and is renowned for its consistent quality, vintage after vintage.
