Palladiano Durello Spumante Brut

NV

In a Nutshell

A lesser-known, yet great alternative to Prosecco - the sparkling wine of choice in Verona bars!

Tasting Notes

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.

Production Notes

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.

made from the rare Durella grape, is a sparkling wine which intends to kick Prosecco off its pedestal. The Durella grape makes drier, more refreshing styles of wine with a mineral tang and this is ideal for tense, classy sparklers. Give it a whirl – who knows, in a decade Durello might be on everyone’s favourite tipple.
