Grape varieties: Teroldego 68%, Other grape varieties 32%
The idea of creating a light Teroldego to celebrate the summer was something that interested them for some time but it wasn’t until the hail storms of August 2017, which destroyed 40% of their harvest that they decided to have a go. From the small amount of fruit harvested from the damaged vines they were able to piece together a number of vinification tests with short maceration processes to make Lezèr. They undertook various batch tests in amphorae, wood, cement and steel, never leaving the grapes on the skins for more than 24 hours.
This wine was born with the spirit of experimentation and continues to develop in this way.
Overseeing the various developments that take place in each vintage, each year they experiment with the addition of full bunches and changing containers, along with tweaking our techniques and timings for short maceration.
