Information about Durella

Grape variety Durella
Synonyms Durello, "Rabiosa" o "Rabbiosa" nelle colline di Asolo (Treviso), "Cagnina" nella parte più elevata delle colline a ponente di Schio in provincia di Vicenza (non ha però nulla a che vedere con la "Cagnina" che si coltiva nella pianura ravennate, essendo questa seconda a frutto nero, mentre la prima è a frutto bianco). Questa dizione, appresa a Brogliano (Vicenza) dal signor Bortolo Faccin e confermataci da altri agricoltori del luogo, può trovare giustificazione forse nel fatto che a quell'altitudine il vino che se ne ottiene, già aspro per natura, si presenta più disarmonico e acidulo.

Areas of cultivation Durella is an autochthonous vine spread in some hilly areas of the Lessini Mountains, on the border between the provinces of Verona and Vicenza in Veneto.
History The area where grapes are grown Durella has an ancient wine story: it seems that in Bolca, a site of the upper Alpine valley (in Veronese) famous for the presence of fossils, some fossil ampelides have been found that are considered The ancestors of the current screws. The name Durella seems to be due to the high hardness and resistance of the acine to the alterations. In the first decades of the '900 the "durello" wine was vinified with maceration of the solid parts and then it was acidic, intensely colored and astringent, and it was very good to increase the acidity of other wines. Towards the sixties it went to winemaking "in white", obtaining a very pleasant product. Its characteristic palate and its high acidity make it particularly suitable for sparkling.
