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.
Trentino is a land rich in natural beauty, history, castles and traditions. You can find Dolomitic peaks, plains and terraced fields where wine grapes have been grown since time can remember.
This is where Mezzacorona grows its vines using mainly the traditional "Trentina pergola" which has evolved from years of traditions and research into a production process which guarantees top quality. Constant manual work is required in this grape growing process and therefore man plays the main role.
Mezzacorona's vineyards are easily recognisable as the pergolas bestow a scenic ondulating "wave" pattern on the landscape. Tthe design of the roof on our most modern winery recalls this distinctive feature.
Precise, minimalist and neat, our territory is essential. This terroir boasts extremely varied terrain and different climactic areas going from sub Mediterranean (Vallle dei Laghi, Valle del Sarca), to the continental (Vallagarina, Valdadige, Piana Rotaliana), to the alpine (Val di Cembra). This diversity makes Trentino an ideal habitat for growing several different varieties as it is able to bring out the best of each of their individual organic characteristics. Mezzacorona carefully selects areas for growing each single variety according to which terroir best enhances the characteristics of each winegrape: Terroldego is grown in the Rotaliana Plain, Muller Thurgau is grown in the Valle di Cembra, Pinot and Chardonnay along the Valle dell'Adige, Merlot and Cabernet in the Valle dei Laghi and by Lake Garda. Each Mezzacorona wine tells the tale of a land in Trentino.
