Responsible for overseeing Gruppo Mezzacorona, the Mezzacorona Societa Cooperativa Agricola was founded in 1904 as one of the first growers associations in Italy.  Currently occupying just under 6,500 acres at the foot of the Italian Dolomites, Gruppo Mezzacorona which produces all Mezzacorona products, combines both the traditional pergola system of growing with the more modern espalier system for enological operations.  While staying true to the natural balance of the grapes, Mezzacorona is equipped with the most modern enological equipment allowing them to produce upwards of 8 million gallons of wine annually. Wine production focuses on quality white production with special attention paid to their Pinot Grigios and Chardonnays, both grapes coming from the Valle dell’ Adige section of the vineyards.  Red production is centered on the Teroldego, followed closely by their Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, harvesting the grapes from the Piana Rotaliana and Lake Garda regions, respectively. Renowned for their consistent quality, Mezzacorona wines benefit from the unique landscape of the Trentino and Alto Adige regions of Italy.  For years Mezzacorona’s renowned winemakers have planted varietals in locations best suited for that varietal, being sure to takeg advantage of all the micro-climates the region has to offer.

Citrus notes on the nose more characteristic of a Pinot Gris or Sauvignon Blanc. Similar to the taste profile with hints of tropical fruits and pear that eventually develops in to a more mouth watering, meaty feel I tend to get from Chardonnay. Not to buttery, not to oaky. Refreshing and satisfying.

Very crisp nose. Rather austere. Lightly floral. It's a crisp, refreshing style with very little to no oak. Good mineral and acid. Not very complex or layered, but it lingers nicely.

Eyes: Nice straw color Nose: I found no bouquet here Mouthfeel: Creamy, dry, a hint of grapefruit I did enjoy this wine none the less. I would definitely drink it again.
