2021 Soave Classico D.O.C. ‘Grisela’

‘Grisela’

Tessari’s golden straw coloured Grisela is a delicious wine that is meant to be enjoyed between friends. Firm, slight melba toast, elderflower and chamomile aromatics with notable minerals. The taste of crushed seashells dance on your tongue with a fun duo of stone fruit and citrus. The finish is refreshing with balanced acidity.

“Grisela” was the nickname of the Tessari family, given to them from their fellow countrymen: reflecting the tradition and love for the land that has remained in their bloodline and still lives today in their wines which embody the family’s character.

Description

The Finer Details

What does our Somm say?

‘Grisela’ Soave D.O.C. is an ‘every meal’ white wine. It works beautifully with light appetizers (olives, breads, sardines, cheeses, chips etc.), yet also pairs well with a delicate vegetable or cheese risottos, fish, pasta with seafood or using cheese or cream based white sauce.

 

But hey, even in winter, this white wine is versatile. You can try it with vegetable soups, legumes, or herb crusted fish.

 

If you want to re-create a truly ‘authentic’ experience, try your hand at some Veneto dishes such as Red Radicchio and pork sausage risotto, ‘Sarde in Saor’, Primavera pasta or Bigoli pasta with duck ragu. Then you’ll really enjoy it with a meal.

 

The volcanic soils of the hillside are rich with basaltic rocks and clays, which guarantees the health of the plant and the promotion of minerality and floral aroma that is characteristic of the Garganega grape. Artisanal wine making at its best, the straw-gold ‘Grisela’ is the backbone of the Tessari vineyard; a delicious entry level wine with elegant fragrances, citrus fruits and a good mineral notes that I would expect from the terroir.

 

Optimal Serving Temp: Chill to 10-12 Degrees Celsius

 

Drinking Age: Drink Now to 12 months.

 

The Winery

Tessari winery was founded in 1933 by Antonio Tessari. Now run by his grandchildren who all hold the Tessari name, this winery has attracted attention at the major wine shows such as Vinitaly, for their high quality wines, beautiful estate and dedicated care to their craft.

 

The winery is found in Monteforte d’Alpone, in volcanic and clayish angled hills and mountains of the Northern Italian region of Veneto.

 

In terms of winemaking,  it’s the high quality care and attention to their plants and production that set the Tessari apart in their region.

 

The family carefully select the grapes, to ferment in absolute absence of sulphites, protecting grapes from oxidation using natural tannins not interfering with the grape characteristics: healthy grapes and high cleanliness prevent bacteria proliferation in the first phases of wine making. The long stay on lees and the batonnage facilitates the extraction of the glutathione, one of the strongest antioxidants found in nature.

 

They are therefore able to obtain a richer, longer and more harmonious wine, with a good balance between aromas and taste, a wine that preserve the typicalness of their hills of Monteforte, respecting the natural expression of Soave Classico D.O.C.
