Cantine Lenotti, More Than A Century Old History
The Cantine Lenotti winery has its origin that can be traced to 1906 and known for producing Bardolino Classico ever since. Over the years, the winery aimed to improve the quality of their grapes and their wines with constant investment, experimentation, and adherence to the very best vinification procedures.
Currently, Cantine Lenotti operates seven vineyards producing perfect grapes using its highest potential.
The Land and The Vines
Cantine Lenotti makes sure to implement organic and sustainable methods to protect the environment and the health of their vines. The main types of red grapes that grow here are Rondinella, Corvina, Molinara, Syrah, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Oseleta, Pelara, Rebo, Dindarella, and Merlot. Also, they also grow white grapes like Garganega, Cortese, Pinot Grigio, and Fernanda. The best grapes are handpicked and taken for further processing in their state of art cellar. Each stage of production is followed with the utmost care for the wine using the latest technologies such as controlled low-temperature fermentation and sterile cold bottling.
Without Compromise, Quality Above All
The wine cellar has a capacity of about 31.000 hectolitres made up for the most part of 140 stainless steel tanks. The 40 Oak butts (25 hectolitres) and the 1100 barriques (300-500 liters) are almost exclusively employed for the aging and fermentation of the wines “Amarone DOCG Classico“, “Di Carlo“, “Ripasso Valpolicella DOC Classico Superiore“, “Cabernet Sauvignon IGT Veneto” and their great red wines “Massimo“, “Le Olle” and “Decus Ripasso“.
