Durella, State of Mind
The Lessini Mountains
Durella is the indigenous vine of Monti Lessini, an ancient and rustic vine that gives golden grapes whose fundamental characteristics are a typical sour taste and a thick skin rich in tannins: polyphenolic substances that give Durello wine its unique personality.
It is a white-berried variety with a winged and compact bunch.
This vine loves good exposure but above all, it needs a good exchange of air and the presence of water, which is why it finds the best conditions for its development in this area.
The Traditional Method
The combination of volcanic soil, which gives the minerality and longevity of the wine, and the acidic character of the vine, allow us to create excellent bases for traditional method sparkling wines.
The technique of refermentation in the bottle represents for us the most interesting expression for durella.
Aging for 3 to 5 years in the bottle with the fermentation lees, the characteristic acidity of the vine evolves, until it becomes a pleasant cream, which leaves interesting cleanliness and pleasantness on the palate.
What makes this wine intriguing is the expression over time, as if to demonstrate that instead of aging over time, it rejuvenates.
