The sparkling wine of choice in the bars of Verona! Not as well known as Prosecco perhaps, but with Prosecco prices creeping upwards this provides a super alternative. Like Prosecco it has gentle floral aromas, beautifully crisp green apple freshness and a vibrant fizz.
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.
