After 8 vintages that have lived a rest on the lees for about 42/45 months, with the 2016 vintage, the Amedeo Lessini Durello Riserva is revealed to the world after about 60 months of aging sur lies.
For many years, at Ca’ Rugate, micro batches of Amedeo were isolated and different periods of refinement were experimented in order to understand the evolution and the sensory profile that the different tests would have highlighted.
The high selections of the Metodo Classico, a category to which Amedeo belongs since its inception, represent the most mysterious and fascinating area of enology and its branches never cease to amaze.
