These efforts are essential in ensuring that more discoveries can be unearthed as that is the surest way of linking future generations with history. More concerted efforts into the activity may discover more of the artifacts that the Romans used. Future Projects on the site should entail promoting the area as an attractive tourist destination by preserving the artifacts and making them accessible.

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG – Tenuta Lena di Mezzo – Monte del Frà

Amarone Classico Lena is a modern style Amarone, balanced and harmonious. It reflects all the characteristics of Classic Valpolicella terroir with its tobacco notes, licorice, spices and chocolate. The grapes are fermented for a few days at low temperatures (cryomaceration) in steel for a natural enhancement of the aromas. After that, the wines rest in oak wood for 30 months, in a sterilized environment by ultraviolet lamps that work every night. In this way the reduction of added sulphites is obtained and it goes from 160 ml/l to about 80 ml/l. The wine is truly inviting, harmonious and elegant. The wine is also suitable for a vegan diet and is awards annually by international guides. The latest prize comes from the USA and reaches 93 points with Antonio Galloni.
