About the Producer
Established in 2003, Adria Vini is a winemaking venture jointly owned by Boutinot and Araldica Castelvero, the leading co-operative in the Monferrato hills of Piemonte. "Our aim is to produce authentic, well-priced still and sparkling wines from local grape varieties." All aspects of production, from grape selection through to vinification, maturation, blending and bottling are meticulously overseen by Araldica's winemaking team of Claudio Manera and Lella Burdese - assisted by Boutinot's Tony Brown MW. They source from a range of private growers and cooperatives, with whom there are long term relationships, principally in Veneto, Friuli, Lombardy, Sicily, Puglia, Abruzzo and Sardinia.
Vineyard and Winery
The Durello grape is local to the Veneto region - grown on the volcanic hillsides of Monti Lessini, between Verona and Vicenza. The name of the grape refers to the small, late-maturing berries (duro = hard). Durello's naturally high acidity and cool, hillside vineyards produce complex, long lived wines to rival Italy's finest sparklers. Production of Durello Spumante is mostly in the hands of a few small growers, traditionally producing bottle fermented wine with up to 6 years on lees. However the variety is also well-suited to the production of fresh, zesty, tank-method wines such as this - aged for 2-3 months on lees.
A decent fizz for the price. Unlike prosecco this one is dry. It's light and makes a change from cava, good value.
