The Azienda Agricola Lenza was founded in 1964 on the slopes of Monte Orfano by the will of Giuseppe Lenza, with the work of patient reconstruction of the vineyards and the planting of vines in forms of pergola given the position and exposure of the land rapidly degrading to the floor and laboriously terraced. Four hectares of land patiently obtained where the rock frequently emerges mixed with the conglomerate hardened by the millennia, the particular nature of the soil, the excellent exposure and the passionate care of an entirely family management, are able to give body and soul to an excellent FRANCIACORTA, rich of nuances and unmistakable perceptions particularly appreciated by connoisseurs who, since the first presentation in 1973, recognize the FRANCIACORTA LENZA a distinct personal typicality.
