OUR PRODUCTS

ORGANIC NATURAL WINES AND OLIVE OIL
INTO THE HEART OF VALPOLICELLA

Mezzo ettaro nel cuore della Valpolicella

UNIQUE WINES AND OILS

We produce unique wines and oils, the natural way.
We are absolutely dedicated to our land, which is why our products are made in limited quantities, and are traceable from plant to bottle.

Mezzo ettaro nel cuore della Valpolicella

VALPOLICELLA
CLASSICO SUPERIORE DOC

Made from controlled-denomination Valpolicella Classico red grapes grown in our vineyard. The grapes are dried for about thirty days, before being handpicked and stored in small wooden crates and fermented and macerated in steel vats at controlled temperatures. The grapes are then aged for a year in old French oak barrels, each holding five hundred litres. The wine is not filtered before bottling.

This wine is also suitable for long ageing in glass to express the full personality of our terroir.

VERONESE
ROSATO IGT

Using the same regionally-certified red grapes with similar proportions of varieties, we have produced a rosé. The grapes are passed through a crusher machine and the wine is made from the must, which “bleeds” off from the skins without pressing, and separates from them in one night. The wine is then steel-fermented at low temperatures, where it remains until spring. It is bottled before the summer, without filtering.

This wine, also suitable for the hottest months of the year, expresses the fragrance of the fresh grapes from which it comes.

Vigneto Valpolicella

VINEYARD
At an altitude of 200 metres, on terraces supported by the characteristic dry walls or “marogne“, made from local stone, and by ancient limestone soil, our vineyard enjoys a good exposure with a moderate continental climate and a Mediterranean microclimate, shielded by the Lessini mountains to the north and close to the southern end of Lake Garda.
A traditional Veronese pergola system made from chestnut wood poles: this ancient method protects against extremes of temperature.

VARIETALS
Our blend is made from typical native red grapes, mainly Corvina Veronese, Corvinone and Rondinella, with Oseleta and Molinara in smaller amounts. This gives the wine its characteristic mix of colour, aromas, tannins, structure and acidity.

CULTIVATION
We obtained the organic certification, which we believe is the minimum requirement for credible sustainability. Working closely with our agronomists and contractors, we perform almost every process and field treatment by hand. Our use of plant protection products is minimal; the substances we use are copper, sulphur, and bio fertilizers. We do not use herbicides.

WINERY
As our estate is so small, we don’t make our wine in-house at the moment; instead we rely on a nearby winery, not long established, but skilled and already experienced. They are firm believers in using natural wine making techniques, and only use the grapes we supply to make our unique wine, which comes from spontaneous fermentation on indigenous yeasts, has a low sulphite content and is bottled unfiltered.

Cantina Mezzo Ettaro in Valpolicella Classica
Olio extra vergine d'oliva

EXTRA-VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
Our olives, mainly the Grignano and Favarol varieties, are grown the biological way, harvested from the tree at just the right time, and are then cold-pressed by our favourite olive miller within fifty hours of harvesting. The oil is then left to decant for forty days in cool steel before being bottled, unfiltered.
