About the Winery
Azienda Agricola Tessari
The Tessari family have Soave in their blood. For three generations they have been extracting delectable wine from the well cared for vines of their Monteforte d’Alpone vineyards. With only a little over a hectare of Garganega grapes in the prestigious volcanic solis of Soave Classico, Antonio Tessari hand dug his cellar back in 1933 and started the legacy that continues today with his grandchildren: Germano, Antonio and Cornelia.
From vineyard to bottle, these three siblings oversee it all; with unwavering respect for tradition, quality and passion for the art of winemaking. The volcanic soils of the hillside are rich with basaltic rocks and clays, which guarantees the health of the plant and the promotes the mineral and floral aromas that are characteristic of the Garganega grape. Truly artisanal wine making at it’s best.

2020: Bright and savoury, this Soave offers plenty of freshness and chalky minerality. Salty and delicately floral with a pleasant toastiness. Green apple, acacia and honey add further dimension to the palate. A youthful Soave that should develop nicely over the next 2-4 years. Tasted February 2022.
90 points - Michael Godel
2020: This latest iteration of Grisela is another salty volcanic number, not the one of the most lush fruit but surely one of a particular Soave mist. Juicy and full of tang, yellow fruits and flowers, even a hot of metal and botanical tonic. Hard to find more complexity from garganega at this price. Drink 2022-2024. Tasted February 2022.
