The Durello grape is local to the Veneto region – grown on the volcanic hillsides of Monti Lessini, between Verona and Vicenza. The name of the grape refers to the small, late-maturing berries (duro = hard). Durello’s naturally high acidity and cool, hillside vineyards produce complex, long lived wines to rival Italy’s finest sparklers. Production of Durello Spumante is mostly in the hands of a few small growers, traditionally producing bottle fermented wine with up to 6 years on lees. However the variety is also well-suited to the production of fresh, zesty, tank-method wines such as this – aged for 2-3 months on lees.
Citrus and gently floral aromas lead to a very fresh and zippy palate with crisp green apple and lightly honeyed characters. A refreshing and approachable style of fizz – yet with texture and depth underlying the bright fruit.
