Suavia Soave DOC Monte Carbonare History
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.
Winemakers Notes on the Suavia Soave DOC Monte Carbonare 2021
"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."
Sisters - Meri, Valenina and Alessandra Tessari.
“Colour: straw yellow with brilliant highlights. Nose: it shows yellow flowers, exotic fruit and white peach, with smoky and peaty notes. Palate: juicy fruit palate accented with mineral, aromatic herbs and almond, alongside crisp acidity. The finish is dry and very persistent.”
And best of all, the wine has been sealed with a screwcap! Woohoo... (not sure if that's just for the Australian market?).
“... this is a complex wine demanding food and a little more contemplation. Mirabelle, apricot pith, a whiff of dried mango and plenty of smoky, pungent mineral grip, with dutiful freshness towing tenacious length. Drinkable now, but best from 2025."
95 points, James Suckling.
"Charming aromatic profile with a strong core of fruit lined by herbal and nutty layers. Burgundian, nutty edge, with honey glazed almonds, lemon curd and a touch of smoke adding allure. Vibrant, acid lift to the finish. Lovely intensity and a great life ahead of it. Organic certified. Alc 12.5%"
