Gambellara Lessini Durello Spumante Brut NV

Color: Soft and bright straw yellow
Bouquet: A citrus fresh fruit bouquet
Taste: Slightly acid, fresh, with green apple hints
Perlage: A fine and persistent perlage

The grapes are collected and transported to the winery in small trailers to prevent the grapes from being squashed, then follows immediate separation of the skins from the stalks purifying of the must and long fermentation at 18 °C.

This is a Charmat method (The secondary fermentation didn't take place in the bottle, but in a vat, which makes it slightly different than the Champenoise method used in Champagne).

To serve with seafood starters, soups, egg dishes, shellfish, seafood and white meat. Very good as aperitif. The perfect match is with the "Baccalà alla Vicentina", the traditional dish of our land.

Review:

This Brut-style fizz with 10g/L residual sugar is made from the ancient Durella grape in the same way as Prosecco, where the second fermentation is in tank, not the bottle. It shows ripe, exotic flavours, a crisp apple bite and a mineral finish. An unusual and appealing aperitif. - Tina Gellie" - Decanter (January 2019), 90 pts"

Cantina di Gambellara was founded in 1947 by a group of 26 vine growers and it was the first cooperative winery started in the Vicenza Province.
At the beginning the harvest was made by only a few thousands of grapes but year by year it has increased very quickly thanks to a continuous extension of the vineyards and the rising number of the partners.
For this reason it was necessary to enlarge the winery and the storage capacity.

The Cantina di Gambellara Vineyard
Cantina di Gambellara vineyards are located in the center of the most important areas for the DOC wine production such as Soave, Gambellara, Colli Berici and Lessini Durello and Prosecco.

Cantina di Gambellara has a storage capacity of 160,000 hl of wine and an average harvest of 130,000 quintal of grapes. We have 365 members growing around 650 hectares of vineyards.

"Shimmering garnet. Aromas of cherry, blueberry, candied flowers, tobacco and coconut pick up a smoky overtone with air. Smooth and fleshy on the palate, offering ripe red and blue fruit, mocha, cola and spicecake qualities that tighten up on the back half. Finishes long and supple with repeating spiciness, even tannins and a lingering suggestion of red berry preserves. This old-school Rioja was aged for two years in 90% American and 10% French oak. - Josh Raynolds"
