This is Soave according to Suavia. It is a wine for flowered teraces and summer nights; a wine for bars with umbrellas and tables on the cobbles of an old illuminated squate. It is a profoundly Italian wine. Our idea of Soave: fresh, fruity, easy to drink but with an unmistakable character at the same time.
It probably would never occur to the Tessari Family to concentrate on anything other than Soave and its two native white grapes-Garganega and Trebbiano di Soave. The name Suavia harkens back to the pre-modern day references to Soave. (The Svevia-later Suavia-were a Germanic tribe that settled in this part of northeastern Italy after the fall of the western Roman Empire.) Vineyards have been in the Tessari hands since the late 1800’s, but it wasnt until the early 1980’s that the family redefined what growing quality grapes could be-tying clonal selection to site-specific areas, lowering Garganega’s prodigious yields, and making the wines in tune with the terroir.
