Grape variety: Nerello Mascalese

Feudo di Mezzo as a contrada is very vaste and therefore Frank prefer to separate the bottom part (sottana) from the upper part (soprana or Porcaria). Although lower in the valley floor where one would expect bigger wines, the wines are of an unusual elegance which characterizes this area. Relatively deep soil which, in humid vintages can create some problems although the well ventilated site helps to get ripeness. Burgundian elegance and roundness, even in hot vintages makes this a special wine with great finesse.
