“Energy and persistence conquer everything”. Benjamin Franklin
It has an ancient golden dress, with bronze hues. A color that evokes tales of ancient warriors and their shields. It is in fact a wine which expresses energy. Il Lessini Durello “Extra Brut” is intense, enveloping and very long lasting. It is a complex sparkling wine, lively but with interesting scented ripe shades. Its scents are of dark bread crusts, acacia and honey hints.
