Lessini Durello is a product that can be considered as an heritage of wine excellence. Durella, an ancient grape that was underestimated for many years, today best expresses that strong Venetian territorial identity. An artfully crafted grape from Cantina di Gambellara, a company that is part of the Vitevis cooperative group, which presents this sparkling wine with clear mineral sensations from the volcanic soils where it is skillfully cultivated.
The four Vitevis cellars have a different soul but are well united by programs for safeguarding, sustainability and we add humanity, thanks also to the synergies and the comparison between the wine technicians who are part of them. This Durello “Monopolio” is mineral from start to finish, it is extremely modern and current for Italian cuisine which is based on the valorisation of raw materials, and it is a wine that will have a great future as a concrete proposal in the panorama of high quality bubbles quality.
The color is bright with greenish yellow reflections, the fragrance of the perfumes is reminiscent of summer and the taste of white-fleshed fruits, the savory note, accentuated by a marked minerality, makes the difference.
Cantina di Gambellara knows this noble and peasant grape perfectly, consumers are increasingly appreciating its gustatory qualities.
Due to its structure and its large body, we paired this Durello “Monopolio” with grilled eel without however missing an aperitif with small portions of asparagus omelettes. Truly a great discovery, congratulations!
