Diletta Tonello Brut Durella Teti 2018


Diletta Tonello is a young winemaker who is turning heads with her Champagne method Italian sparkling wines. Diletta recently started her own micro wine project at her family’s winery, originally founded in 1980. Diletta grew up around the winery and then attended a high school focused on agriculture. She then went on to study winemaking in Padua. Following school, she spent a few years working harvests in other regions to broaden her experience before returning to the winery to assume the role of winemaker in 2013.

She owns 12 hectares of vines in the prime subzone for Durella, the Montorso Vicentino area nestled between Verona and Vicenza. The soil in this appellation is volcanic clay which adds a salinity and minerality to the wines. The vineyards were mostly planted in 1989 and are grown on traditional pergola veronese and are hand-harvested. The winery is scheduled to be certified organic later this year, though they have been working organically for many years.

This gorgeous wine is fermented in stainless steel and then assembled in the winter. The wine undergoes the secondary fermentation in the bottle where is stays on the lees for 36 months. After disgorging, it stays in the cellar for at least three months before release. Just read the review below — it speaks volumes to the quality of this one!

96 Points, Kerin O’Keefe – Wine Enthusiast
This radiant, bone-dry sparkler boasts racy tension that counters tangy citrus, yellow apple and saline mineral sensations. An extremely refined perlage and crisp acidity carry through to the pristine, mouthwatering finish. Lessini Durello Metodo Classico is one of Italy’s greatest sparklers and winemaker Diletta Tonello one of the denomination’s star producers.
