Suavia Soave Classico is composed of 100 Garganega grapes harvested from the Tessari family's 12 hectare estate located in the historic heart of the Soave appellation. Suavias Soave Classico is vinified only in stainless steel tanks with several months lees contact before bottling. The resulting wine has a clarity of expression and regional typicity that speaks to the Tessari family's philosophy of careful selection, low yields and incredible attention to detail in the winemaking process.
Suavia Soave Classico appears bright and lemon-yellow. Fresh aromas of apple, pear and almond balance clean minerality and a hint of fresh herb. Crisp and refreshing on the palate, the flavors and aromas build toward a harmonious and lingering finish.
Ideal as an aperitif, Suavia Soave Classico matches well with a wide array of dishes, from hors d'oeuvres and fresh fish to white meats and young cheeses. It is equally well-suited to summer nights in the back yard with friends or family.

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. Rigorous clonal research into the two white varieties has resulted in mono-varietal examples of each, both grown on pure extrusive basaltic ( black volcanic) soil; Monte Carbonare (Garganega) and Massifitti (Trebbiano di Soave).
