Giannitessari – 36 MESI Lessinu Durello – Gold Sea Breeze

13th December 2017


Congratulations to Giannitessari with their 36 MESI Lessinu Durello which received a Gold medal at The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly awards 2017.

A panel of 36 top industry wine judges tasted all the entries for 2017 and were able to not only scores wines with medals, but also place them in to easy to understand categories such as Sea Breeze: “Some of us love refreshing, almost very zesty style of wines. When you taste this wine you will imagine yourself standing on the beach and tasting those tiny sea drops in the air.

“After being aged in the underground cellars of Marcato winery for three years, the Lessini Durello Brut 36, produced with Traditional method, learns perseverance. The ability of being stable, continuous. Persistence. In the same way this sparkling wine is long lasting which can be appreciated in the mouth for a certain creaminess of the bubbles, parallel to a mineral quality which evokes rock dust. These have medium length and “push”. It releases at the end aromas with reminiscences of citrus and pineapple. The colour is bright yellow, its perlage is thick and continuous. Complex aroma,  of white wildflowers and white pulp fruit with a sweet trace of almonds and toasted bread.” Quote from website
