Lessini Durello Doc Spumante Wine
100% Durella grapes. Durella is an ancient native 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.
Short Veronese Tendone.
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 April 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.
A deep yellow, definitively golden.
Elegant, with great persistence.
Characterised by complex layers, with a foundation of mature ripe fruit and a fine sweetness of fresh pastries. Great expressiveness: exotic fruit, ripe pineapple, peaches in syrup and sweet spices.
The flavour underscores its aromatic expressions. The wine is round, creamy, with consistent bubbles and strong notes of fresh pastries. Fine, fruity and persistence with recognizable minerality.
Excellent with a scallop risotto or seabass made with a fried potato. A provocative combination is with Chantilly cream puffs.
Ideally served at 4-6° C in a glass to enhance all its characteristics.
