Anyone who pops open a bottle of Lessini Durello DOC always finds a crisp and enjoyable spumante full of character: with a fragrance that recalls the Rennet apple and yellow citrus fruit, great mineral content typical of wines from volcanic terroir and a characteristic tannin consistency, it is a unique white wine of particularly tantalising perlage. It is produced in two variations, making it ideal for very different occasions, with making the right choice very easy: Lessini Durello DOC Metodo Italiano/Charmat if you are looking for a softer wine with a crisp and bright aroma, or Lessini Durello DOC Metodo Classics if you require fuller body and a more complex aromatic impression.
The Durella is a variety native to the Lessini Mountains, an ancient and rustic vine that produces golden grapes whose essential feature is a typical sour flavour and thick skin rich in tannins: these polyphenolic substances typically contribute to determining the full bodied structure of red wine. The Durella has been grown on the Lessini Mountains at least since the Middle Ages. A thousand vintages seem but a few but they mean one thousand years of adaptation to this terroir, a thousand years to reach its maximum natural expression. To give the Lessini Durello DOC spumanti of today their typical volcanic mineral quality.
