Sam, our Wine Buff's pick of the month is a citrusy sparkling wine produced by Adria Vini, a joint venture by Boutinot wines and Araldica Castelvero, a leading co-operative in the Monferrato hills of Piemonte.
Their aim is to produce authentic, well-priced still and sparkling wines from local grape varieties. Produced on the volcanic soils surrounding Verona is Durello Spumante Brut Palladiano, a great alternative to Prosecco. Made using grapes from a range of private growers and cooperatives, it has mouthwatering freshness and bags of youthful fruit flavours.
With sparkling wine beginning to gain prominence, this is a great addition to any range.
