"Aromas of ground black pepper and wild berry lead the way. The juicy delicious palate mirrors the nose, doling out succulent Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry and cinnamon. Easygoing and balanced, it boasts supple tannins and fresh acidity. It's made to be drunk young so enjoy soon."~K.O.

Monte Del Fra

View all from Monte Del Fra
The heart of Monte del Frà is located in the village of Custoza on the morainic hills of Lake Garda, only 15km from Verona.

Today, the winery that was founded in 1958, owns over 140 hectares of vineyards. Its history is linked to the grand crus such as Cà del Magro, il vigneto Colombara, Grottino, Staffalo, Monte Godi, Monte Fitti, Mascarpine, Bagolina, Pezzarara and Monte del Frà. For the past decade or so, the Bonomo family has also owned a beautiful winery in the Valpolicella Classica village of Fumane along the banks of the Lena stream in Lena di Mezzo.

By carefully selecting the land on which to plant vineyards and by meticulously implementing agronomic practices, Monte del Frà has become one of the most avantgarde wineries for the production of high quality grapes. The vineyards are planted in guyot in the areas of Cusotza, Bardolino and Lugana and with the classic "pergola" system in the Valpolicella Classica. These vines produce only 2-3 kg of grapes per plant and are the basis for the winery's high quality standards.

The controlled management of raw materials and the implementation of winemaking procedures using the most modern techniques to preserve the characteristics of the grapes, guarantee Monte del Frà's ability to produce prestigious wines.

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW

Easy drinking red for spring

"Finally the weather's getting nicer, and with it, we have the perfect opportunity to enjoy this light bodied northern italian red. Flush with raspberry jam and spice on the nose, bright maraschino cherry, pomegranate, and vanilla warm the early palate. Lingering hints of pepper and tobacco along with mild tannins make this an ideal paring for food. Meant to be enjoyed immediately."

Not ready to fully enjoy

"Not as smooth and round as a dolcettd’alba or an older bardolino it needs a couple of years on the shelf before it will be ready"
