The Danese family founded a wine business in the early fifties in the tiny town of Roncà, situated in Verona province in area of the Lessini Mountains National Park close to Soave DOC and Valpolicella DOC areas. It began as a traditional wine merchant business, selling the wines in bulk or in “damigiana”, which is a typical glass container that was used in many Mediterranean countries to transport wine, to the wholesalers or directly to local osterias in the North of Italy.
In the 80s three cousins of the Danese family founded a new company Srl (ltd), one of the founders of the company was Mario Danese.

Since 1997 Cantina Danese Srl has been fully owned by Mario Danese (father) and Luca Danese (Mario’s son) who is the also the CEO of the company.
Lessini Durello DOC Spumante Brut
Durello is the name of the wine and it derives from the name Durella, that is the name of the grape. Durella in English means “tough”, “strong”, because this local grape has a very high natural level of acidity. For this reason almost 90% of this grape is used to produce a sparkling version, just to make the acidity softer. Durella grape has a very particular and distinctive bouquet (especially grapefruit, citron, tangerines) and typical mineral hints because of the volcanic origin of the soil.
Colour is pale straw yellow with greenish highlights. The mousse is fine and persistent, the aromas of green apple and white spring blossom. The palate is vibrant and fresh with notes of citrus and a savoury finish.
