Suavia, an estate owned and managed by the Tessari sisters, is made up of 2 single vineyards located around the winery in the village of Fittà, about 1,000 feet above the town of Soave. The Monte Carbonare is bright and lacy in texture, made entirely from Garganega and fermented and aged in stainless steel, allowing the site’s smoky minerality to shine.
In contrast, the Le Rive, also a 100 percent Garganega, is an experiment in oak-influenced Soave. About 30 percent of the wine is fermented in 228-liter oak barriques (20 percent new), resulting in a rich and layered wine with balanced acidity. PWS
