Winemaker's Notes on the Suavia Soave DOC Monte Carbonare 2019
"We always say that this wine is like a bit of earth in a glass, and it's true. In the Monte Carbonare vineyard the vines sink their roots deep down into the black earth; pure volcano. This gives the wine personality: forthright and truthful, with a sharp mineral nature. It tastes of rain on flint, on the black stones of the dry walls, and of that good fragrance that the countryside releases when dampened by the first rain." Winemaker's notes on the Suavia Soave DOC Monte Carbonare 2019.
This extraordinary estate sits in the centre of the Classico region, higher than most others, with the 3 sisters devoting their energies solely to the region’s two native white varieties, garganega and trebbiano di soave. In 1982 Giovanni Tessari stopped selling his grapes to the local co-operative and started making his own wine. These days the 12ha estate is run by Giovanni’s three daughters; Meri, Valenina and Alessandra.
“Incredible melange of fruit on the nose here. Fresh pear, melon, peach and more exotic notes of papaya and even banana. Add to that, aromas of dried flowers and river stones. Medium-to full-bodied and layered with lip-smackingly fresh, exotic fruit up front and a dense bed of sweeter fruit and mineral underneath. The intensity doesn’t let off for minutes.” 96 points, James Suckling. Nov 2021.
