Palladiano Durello Spumante Brut NV, Italy
A crisp, zesty fizz from the local Durello grape grown on the Foothills of Monte Lessini. 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.
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. It is a popular alternative to Prosecco, has depth and texture and it is the fizz of choice, of course, in all the best Verona bars. Matches well with antipasti of cold meats and mature cheeses and risotto too. ABV 11.5% 100% Durello grapes Vegetarian & Vegan. Cork
