Palladiano “Durello”, NV
SKU: UIAV004 Category: Sparkling
This wine is a crisp, zesty fizz from the local Durello grape grown in the foothills of Monte Lessini. The sparkling wine of choice in Verona's bars and restaurants.
How it's made
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 six years on lees. However, the variety is also well-suited to the production of fresh, zesty tank method wines such as this – aged for two to three months on lees.
Serve with antipasti of cold meats and mature cheeses or Veneto-style risotto.
Citrus and gentle 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.
