Durella and Chardonnay grapes from the volcanic hills of Gambellara. A champenoise method that blends the two souls of the winery: my father Gian Domenico, who has always cultivated the Durella grape variety, and me, Davide, infact I have introduced Chardonnay grape variety. The grape harvest is manual. After the grapes have aged in stainless steel tanks the best Cuvee is chosen for the sparkling process.
On the nose you can smell notes of ripen fruit, yeast and bread crusts. In the mouth it is round, enveloping and floral. The finish reminds of exotic fruit.
