Italian sparkler with added depth of flavour.
Tasting Notes: Elegant non-vintage sparkling wine from the hills of Lessinia. Citrus and gently floral aromas lead to a very fresh and zippy palate with crisp green apple and lightly honeyed characters.
Although from the Veneto Region this is not a prosecco. This is made from Durello grapes (not Glera), giving excellent depth with lovely clean fruit flavours. Durello has more depth and complexity than glera, but like glera has all clean fruit qualities that make Italian sparklers soo popular.
Food Match : A delicious aperetif, or good with cold meats and mature cheeses.
Grape : Durello
Producer : Cielo e Terra Casa Defra
Country : Veneto, Italy
