Lessini Durello Doc Spumante Wine
100% Durella grapes. Durella is an ancient and indigenous grape variety from the Veneto region. It is extremely vigorous, with a particularly thick and leathery skin, cultivated on soils rich in minerals. A variety typically found in the Lessini Mountains, it grows on the hills between the provinces of Vicenza and Verona; it is capable of creating wines with remarkable acidity due to the high content of malic acid, lending itself well to Metodo Classico sparkling wine.
The Lessini Mountains in the north east hills of Verona.

End of August. The grapes are harvested by hand and transported in boxes. The boxes are then placed in the cellar, cooling the grapes before pressing
Soft pressing occurs at a temperature between 10-12°C. The first fermentation takes place in thermo-controlled tanks, here, the temperature can range from 15-18°C. In May the wine then undergoes second fermentation using its own yeasts.
Occurring on its own yeasts in the bottle, the fermentation period is no less than 48 months. Remuage sûr pupitres: once the fermentation process is complete, the bottles are taken from their stacks and placed inverted in the pupitres and then turned by hand every day for about 30 days, after which they are then disgorged.
Straw yellow tending towards golden yellow
Consistent, fine, elegant and very persistent
The nose is definitely evolved, pleasantly opening up with light notes of bread crust and toast, thereafter, ripe yellow fruit, hazelnut, dried fruit come through as well as the pleasant minerality typically found in wines of the area.
Consistently bubbly, this is also noticeable in the glass, but it is not aggressive and carries great elegance. In the mouth it shows its full potential in every tasty, harmonious sip where citrus and dried fruit can be subtly detected.
The pairings options with this wine are interesting, such as smoked salmon accompanied by buffalo mozzarella or a fish stew.
Ideally served at 4-6° C in a glass to enhance its persistent aromas.
