“Wisdom listens to the lessons of flowing time”. Anonymous
If the wisdom was a sparkling wine, it would be a Lessini Durello “120 Mesi”: the Extra Brut Classic Method produced with the grapes of the Lessini Mountains.
Its complex flavour remembers dried fruit and acacia’s honey, and also hints of toasted bread and yeast. The great structure tell the long ageing in bottle in the quarries of the winery. In these years the rhythm of the seasons runs incessantly, the wisdom of time increase and the balance of this sparkling wine grow up on acidity and minerality with a long finish.
