Today I’d like to tell you about a sparkling wine that really surprised and impressed me. It’s part of the Lessini Durello DOC typology and it is, of course, a Classic Method (Champenois). But first, it seems only fair to introduce the type of grapes from which this wine is born: it is the Durella, so called because of its thick and hard skin (“Durella” meaning “hard”).
Elegance, intense aroma and a noticeable mineral component: there are the three qualities possessed by Classic Method (the same Champenois) Trentodoc sparkling wine, produced by the 45 companies adhering to Trento Doc Institute. This is far from a given, but Trentino people are gifted with precision, rigor and foresight, and that goes doubly so for vintners.
Dear friends, I admit my crazy love for sparkling wines and specially for the Italian Metodo Classico sparkling wines (the same as Champagne method). Since several years these kind of wines are produced in many Italian regions, not only in those so-called “traditional regions”.
But the first choice for this Blog between Metodo Classico comes from Trentino (both Lombardia produces many wines Metodo Classico sparkling wine, right on the top). The Trentodoc producers define their excellent wines as “Mountain Bubbles”. Today I will tell about a really number one sparkling wine.
