Cantina Franchetto

Lessini Durello Classic Method 'Cantina Franchetto'

The evolution of Durella in the 36/48 months on the lees in the bottle, manages to make the wine it gives life to a perfect synthesis of itself and the basaltic soil on which it grew.

The Franchetto family has lived and cultivated the land since 1800 in Terrossa, a small village in the wild hills rich in biodiversity of the Val d'Alpone – at the foot of the Lessini Mountains. However, the story of 'Cantina Franchetto' begins later, in 1982, when Antonio Franchetto, at the age of 20 and already aware of the great potential of his territory, decides to have his say by starting to press his grapes and make his own wine. Today Giulia Franchetto, together with her mother and father, carries on the family history by running the company and always working in Terrossa, where it all began.
