Additional Information

Anterra, or “ancient land” in Italian, refers to the long, rich viticultural history of the Veneto region. Anterra is produced by the Mezzacorona winery, located in heart of the Dolomites along the Italian Alps. The climate of the Italian Dolomites is characterized by a warm Mediterranean influence from the south and crystal clear sunlight. A fresh and wild breeze blows from the over 400 lakes and numerous glaciers of the surrounding mountains, peaking at over 9,000 feet. It is the ideal environment to create elegant, vivid and crispy varietal wines.

The state-of-the-art wineries of Mezzacorona and the expertise of over 100 years of winemaking tradition preserve the elegance and crispiness of solid and consistent wines. Vinification occurs in steel tanks at controlled temperature. The whole process is constantly looked over by the team of oenologists which manages the fermentation and organic evolution, the pumping over and the aging of the wine. The steel tanks, casks, barrels and bottling lines are extremely sophisticated and are a symbol of oenological excellence.

Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay are dominant in the Dolomites. They are well known for their floral tones, exotic fruit, ripe aromas and silky smoothness on the palate. Mezzacorona is the largest Italian estate producer of these two varietals.

Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon also have a long history of cultivation in the region. They are vinified in such a way that the varietals’ flavors of forest berries, chocolate and toasted almond are preserved.
