Lessini Durello Riserva DOC

Geographical Origin

Monti Lessini, Val'd'Alpone Verona.

Grape Variety

100% Durella.


Sparkling Durello Brut.

Tasting Notes

This 'Purple Label' sparkling from Fongaro opens with a pronounced bouquet featuring notes of bread crust, peanut butter, and hazelnut. After a brief rest, floral aromas emerge, accompanied by hints of tropical fruit like grapefruit and green apple, as well as nuances of vanilla and tobacco. On the palate, it is dry with medium acidity, bursting with tropical fruit flavors. Medium-bodied and velvety, it offers a harmoniously rounded and balanced experience.

Alcohol Content

12.5% ABV (Alcohol by Volume).

Production Method & Ageing

The Durella grapes are hand picked and crated in small boxes. The boxes are then placed to cool in a cellar before soft pressing occurs. Pressing is controlled at a temperature of 10-12°C.
First fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled steel tanks, 15-18°C. After six months (May) the new wine is bottled and undergoes a second fermentation upon its own natural yeasts. The wine is left to rest and mature for no less than 42 months.
Once maturity is reached, the bottles are taken from their stacks and then carefully positioned neck down in pupitres racks. They are then turned by hand every day for about 30 days before undergoing disgorgement, during which a final dosage is added to adjust this Fongaro Viola Brut’s final flavour profile.


Fongaro Spumanti, Roncà, Verona.
